Dr Bartone - 5AA - Diabetes Glucose Strips

AMA Vice President Dr Tony Bartone discusses changes to the National Diabetes Services Scheme. Dr Bartone said people with type 2 diabetes not using insulin will receive an initial six month supply of subsidised blood glucose test strips under the NDSS. After six months, they will only be eligible for further access to subsidised test strips if their doctor or other authorised health professional considers it clinically necessary to use test strips.
