Temporary NDSS changes: signing of forms and BGTS six month approval forms

To make things easier during the COVID-19 pandemic, NDSS has announced that health professionals will be able to complete NDSS forms for access to services and diabetes products without the need for co-signing by the person with diabetes. This temporary change will include:

  • NDSS registration form
  • Medication change form
  • Continuous and Flash Glucose Monitoring eligibility assessment forms
  • Insulin pump consumable assessment form

In addition, the requirement for a Blood Glucose Test Strip (BGTS) Six Month Approval form to be completed has been temporarily suspended. This means people with type 2 diabetes who do not use insulin will not need to have a form completed by a health professional to receive subsidised access to BGTS through the NDSS.
