Thank you for making your voice heard!

21 July 2017  

We would like to thank all stakeholders who submitted their comments to the Department of Health regarding the proposed NDSS listing of FreeStyle Libre. 

The Australian Department of Health is in the process of evaluating the reimbursement (subsidy) of FreeStyle Libre for listing on the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS). As part of this process, the Department of Health requested comments and submissions from stakeholders. The public consultation process closed on 17 July.

The Department of Health has noted that all comments received will be considered.

As next steps, the Department of Health’s assessment panel will consider submissions made by the public, and will make a recommendation about FreeStyle Libre.

Abbott’s aim is to ensure equitable and affordable access to the FreeStyle family of glucose monitoring systems, including FreeStyle Libre, for people living with diabetes.

If you are subscribed to receive news from Abbott, we will endeavour to keep you updated as this journey progresses and how you can continue to be involved.
