does NOT work for folks living in BC ...one's connection is the Pharmacy only !! ...so one receives Pharmacare coverage ...I don't know the whole story , other than US folks buy from Canadian Pharmacies ...interesting to say the least !!

PS are you referring to Infusion sets ( which you called needles for your pump ???) ??

yes i am i use the rapid d sets from accu chek

I would start by calling a few Doctor offices in the town you want to buy them from. Explain that you are a Canadian citizen and looking for a prescription for your pump supplies. A Doctors appointment will cost you $100+ but once you have a prescription you can order them from any pharmacy.
