I have type 2 diabetes my NDSS registration no = XXXXXXX how will I receive my initial 6 month supply of test strips under the new revised NDSS scheme

Under the recently announced changes to the NDSS there will be changes in access to subsidised test strips for people with type 2 diabetes who do not use insulin. From July 1, all people with type 2 diabetes who are not using insulin can purchase an initial six months’ supply of subsidised blood glucose testing strips, equivalent to 900 strips. Six months from the date of first purchase after July 1, restrictions will come into effect. Under these restrictions, people with type 2 diabetes who are not using insulin may be granted an extension to access subsidised test strips. People with type 2 diabetes who are not using insulin will be eligible for further access if their doctor or an authorised health professional considers it clinically necessary. These extensions will allow an additional 6 months' of access, and there is no limit on the number of extensions that may be obtained. This change follows the independent advice of the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee. These changes will not affect people with diabetes using insulin, or people with gestational or other diabetes. Please contact the NDSS Infoline on 1300 136 588 if you have any questions or concerns.
