From 1 March only the CareSens range of blood glucose meters and strips are subsidised (with a few exceptions)
It is with deep regret that we must announce that due to recent changes in how test strips are funded DNZSL can no longer cover its running costs and therefore ceased operation on 1 December 2012.
- Going forward you can get your strips prescription fulfilled by your local pharmacy (if you foresee a problem you should talk to your GP so they can advise you on your options).
- You can still order diabetes information pamphlets from Diabetes NZ National Office.
- Clinics can order meters and strips from Diabetes NZ. (These are funded under a separate a contract with the Ministry of Health).
