August has been a huge month for us at Timesulin. We’ve announced our FDA registration approval, our partnership with Facet Technologies in the US, and our pending availability in the US. But that’s not all that’s happened – we’re also excited to announce that nine out of the top ten insurers in Canada have added Timesulin to their list of reimbursable products.
This is a major step in the right direction and a victory for the Canadian diabetes community. With the cost of diabetes care and management as high as it is (anyone priced out a CGM lately?) and the lack of many insurance companies that don’t cover diabetes supplies, being able to get reimbursements for technology that can help the T1 community live a safe and simpler life is a huge relief.
The nine major insurance companies that have approved Timesulin for reimbursement include:
- Great West Life
- Manulife Financial
- Sun Life Financial
- Industrial Alliances
- Medavie Blue Cross
- Empire Life
- Standard Life
- Equitable Life
If you’re insured with one of the providers above, this is what you need to do to get reimbursed for your Timesulin purchases.
- Obtain a prescription from your physician where the Montméd Timesulin is identified by name and DIN number.
- Take your prescription to a pharmacy to buy your Timesulin.
- If your insurance card is accepted, you will NOT need to pay the portion covered by your insurance.
- If your insurance card rejects Timesulin, you should first buy it at full cost.
- Afterwards, fill out a claim form from your insurance company, attach the invoice and prescription, and send everything to your insurance company to get your reimbursement.
