The National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) helps people with diabetes to understand and manage their life with diabetes. It also provides timely, reliable and affordable access to the NDSS support services and products.
The NDSS provides subsidised diabetes-related products including:
- syringes and needles
- blood glucose test strips
- urine test strips
- insulin pump consumables
- continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) products.
The NDSS also provides support services for people with diabetes.

HTA pathway for diabetes-related products
From 1 November 2020, the Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) is the designated HTA body to consider diabetes-related products for subsidisation under the NDSS and the Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Initiative.
Information about MSAC, including assessment processes, timeframes and document templates, is available on the MSAC website.
Review of products provided through the CGM Initiative
We have begun a review of all products currently subsidised under the CGM Initiative. This assessment will involve an HTA process, and be conducted by MSAC.
