Delivery of Product
All products sent by mail are free of any postage charges. Five working days should be allowed for delivery (10-14 days in remote areas).
Diabetes Australia is not permitted to exchange NDSS products incorrectly ordered by Registrants. In addition, some products have a use-by date, so to avoid unnecessary wastage, you should not over-order these items.
Each year, on the 1st of January, in accordance with the NDSS Head Agreement 2011-2016, the Registrant contribution for supplies under the NDSS increases. This increase is in line with the Government's policy on medicines subsidised under the PBS, which are indexed annually to account for changes in the costs of goods.
Details of price increases will be posted on this website.
Registrants who have one of the following cards are eligible for additional subsidies:
