On 1 April 2017 the Commonwealth government announced that children aged up to 10 are automatically eligible for government-supported CGM upon application through an endocrinologist, credentialed diabetes educator or nurse practitioner specialising in diabetes. If you are between the ages of 11 and 21, you may also be eligible for government-supported CGM, however additional eligibility criteria must be met.
Amy Rush CDE/APD is now taking clinic bookings for patients seeking to apply for government-supported CGM. Please click here for information regarding applications and the relevant form.
Contact Amy on firstname.lastname@example.org to set up your CGM Application appointment.
Make sure you visit your GP prior to your session to get a Chronic Disease Management Plan, which discounts the cost of your appointments.
For more information on the available CGM systems, visit the DEXCOM and Guardian Connect websites, and make sure you check out the Family Centre's CGM/Flash Glucose Monitoring Info Guide here! (Note: the Freestyle Libre is not part of the new subsidised CGM scheme).
