I expect to pay for all expenses out of pocket, so insurance coverage will not be an issue.

I am Canadian and travelled to the US to get a prescription for my OMNIPOD. No problem. You need to find a doctor that will agree to examine you, prescribe the Omnipod and be willing to supply you with an area to get the training when your first OMNIPOD is delivered. You will need prescription for the PODS that you need to buy every months, and the insulin. The PODS will have to be ordered from the US. Good luck.
