A diagnostic blood glucose test meter is subsidised for a patient who:

  1. is receiving insulin or sulphonylurea therapy; or

  2. is pregnant with diabetes; or

  3. is on home TPN at risk of hypoglycaemia or hyperglycaemia; or

  4. 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:

  1. type 1 diabetes; or

  2. permanent neonatal diabetes; or

  3. undergone a pancreatectomy; or

  4. 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.
