Abbott’s aim is to ensure equitable and affordable access to the FreeStyle family of glucose monitoring systems for people living with diabetes. We know many of you have some questions around FreeStyle Libre reimbursement, so we wanted to provide you with an update.

When will FreeStyle Libre be reimbursed?

We are currently actively pursuing reimbursement for FreeStyle Libre on the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS). The Department of Health governs the timetable and the Federal Government is the ultimate decision maker.

Significantly, we have lodged a comprehensive and robust reimbursement submission with the Department of Health for their review. We have been doing everything in our power to work with the Department of Health and the Federal Government to reimburse FreeStyle Libre as part of the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS).

We cannot speculate on the timeframe that the Department of Health and Federal Government will require to evaluate the reimbursement of FreeStyle Libre in Australia but are actively engaging them on the value of FreeStyle Libre for our customers.

I want to know more; how can I help? 

We are glad you are interested! If you are subscribed to receive news from Abbott, we will endeavour to keep you updated as this journey progresses and how you can get involved.
