National Diabetes Service Scheme (NDSS)
Registration is free to all Australians who live with diabetes.
The NDSS is an Australian Government initiative which provides subsidised diabetes products to help Australians manage their diabetes.
If you are registered with the NDSS, and you hold a Gold Card or White Card with diabetes as an accepted condition, there will be no out of pocket costs for diabetes consumables that you order through your pharmacy. This is because the Australian government subsidises products and DVA has agreed to cover the co-payment for eligible DVA clients. If you are not an NDSS registrant and wish to register, you can do so at www.ndss.com.au/about-the-ndss/registrationBack to top
