- Federal Health Minister, Diabetes organisations, CDE's, Endocrinologists & people with Type 1
Life is hard enough with Type 1 Diabetes. Why is it so hard to allow us to access essential health aids?
The Omnipod tubeless insulin patch pump is approved for sale in Australia by the TGA but the Federal Government's Prostheses legislation and NDSS has not approved equal reimbursement for new diabetes technologies like the Omnipod. This is not right.
Why Minister do you not change the policy that would force the Private Health Funds to reimburse new diabetes technology like Omnipod?
