A diagnostic blood glucose test meter is subsidised for a patient who:
is receiving insulin or sulphonylurea therapy; or
is pregnant with diabetes; or
is on home TPN at risk of hypoglycaemia or hyperglycaemia; or
has a genetic or an acquired disorder of glucose homeostasis, excluding type 1 or type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
The prescription must be endorsed accordingly.
Only one CareSens meter per patient will be subsidised (no repeat prescriptions).
Patients already using the CareSens N POP meter and CareSens N meter are not eligible for a new meter, unless they have:
type 1 diabetes; or
permanent neonatal diabetes; or
undergone a pancreatectomy; or
cystic fibrosis-related diabetes.
For the avoidance of doubt patients who have previously received a funded meter, other than CareSens, are eligible for a funded CareSens meter.
