The National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) is an initiative of the Australia Government administered by Diabetes Australia, through which Australians diagnosed with diabetes can access practical assistance, information and diabetes products and subsidised prices.
To register with the NDSS, applicants must be diagnosed with diabetes, living in Australia and hold or be eligible to hold a Medicare card.
Visitors to Australia may be eligible via a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement with their home country.
People who are registered with the NDSS can access a range of subsidised Government approved products including:
- Testing strips for checking blood glucose levels
- Insulin syringes and pen-needles (if you require insulin)
- Insulin pump consumables (IPCs)
