Diabetes in Portugal

Hi!  My wife and I are planning to move to Portugal from the states in June 2018 and we were wondering how the insurance goes over there for Diabetics.  I am a EU citizen, however she would need a work visa I believe.  My wife is a Primary school teacher as well as a Mathematics certified teacher. We are looking at American International Schools in Lisbon who state they have there own private insurance plans for their teachers.  What would be the difference between the universal healthcare and these private insurances?  My wife using a pump here call the Omnipod, I have done so much research on Google from the USA, but can only find so much.  Any help on the matter would be so helpful.  Thank You!!!
