SYDNEY, Australia – 1 July 2023: Dexcom Inc. (Nasdaq: DXCM), a global leader in real-time continuous glucose monitoring for people with diabetes, and its Australian subsidiary Australasian Medical and Scientific Ltd (AMSL Diabetes) are excited to share that AMSL Diabetes has been successful in their application to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) in providing fully funded diabetes products including Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) and Tandem t:slim X2 Insulin Pump systems to eligible DVA clients. This will fall under the contract for mobility and functional support (MFS) and home modification products and services.
As of the 1st July 2023, changes to contractual arrangements with eligible DVA clients will streamline the process for healthcare professionals to prescribe contracted diabetes products for eligible DVA clients. Clients can order their diabetes supplies directly through contracted suppliers (Aidacare, Allianz Global Assistance, The Country Care Group and BrightSky), rather than the previous process which saw clients contact DVA’s Rehabilitation Appliances Program (RAP), or obtain diabetes products via the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS).
A number of AMSL Diabetes products are now listed as contracted items and can be ordered, fully funded, for eligible DVA clients:
For our current Dexcom, Tandem t:slim X2 and HypoPak users who are also DVA clients, we recommend speaking to your healthcare professional to see if this update is relevant to you and to discuss next steps in accessing funded products via this DVA scheme.
AMSL and its parent company, NZMS in New Zealand, supply medical and scientific technologies to Australia and New Zealand. They form partnerships with world leading medical device, pharmaceutical and scientific innovators to introduce and establish advances in healthcare and science for the benefit of patients, healthcare providers and quality assurance professionals.
