Omnipod® NDSS Subsidy

After the past year of partnering with the inspiring type 1 diabetes community, the team at Omnipod Australia is delighted to announce that as of 1 December 2022, Omnipod DASH® Pods will be listed on the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS)

You will be able to access the NDSS subsidy for Omnipod DASH® Pods if:

  1. You are living with type 1 diabetes and registered with the NDSS.
     
  2. You lodge the NDSS Insulin Pump Consumable Access Form that is certified by your diabetes health professional, nominating Omnipod® as your insulin pump.
     
  3. You are an Omnipod DASH® System user under your NDSS registration.

Become a registered Omnipod DASH® System user

To access subsidised Pods, your NDSS registration must reflect that you are an Omnipod DASH User. This can be done by either a one-off payment covering four years of access similar to other insulin pump systems (this may be covered by private health insurance), or by paying a monthly subscription fee to Insulet Australia.

WITH
Private Health Insurance

You may be eligible through your private health insurance policy, check with your insurer about your eligibility to access Omnipod DASH® System. If approved, your insurer will cover the cost to access the Omnipod DASH® System, providing eligibility to NDSS subsidised Pods as a registered Omnipod user. The standard warranty as applied by the insurer exists.

Once all three requirements are met you can access subsidised Pods through an NDSS Access Point for the applicable NDSS co-payment.

The NDSS co-payment amount is $29.30/box for general & $22.20/box for concession card holders.

WITHOUT
Private Health Insurance

Without private health insurance, you will need to purchase a no lock-in subscription payable to Omnipod Australia at a monthly cost of $168.27 to access the Omnipod DASH® System, providing eligibility to NDSS subsidised Pods as a registered Omnipod user. The no lock-in subscription can be made in either monthly or quarterly instalments. 

Once all three requirements are met you can access subsidised Pods through an NDSS Access Point for the applicable NDSS co-payment.

Access to subsidised Pods conditional to no lock-in subscription payments being met.

The NDSS co-payment amount is $29.30/box for general & $22.20/box for concession card holders.

Before accessing the Omnipod DASH® System, you must have the support of a diabetes health professional who will ensure you have the required paperwork stating clinical need; AND before commencing Omnipod DASH® System, you must complete training with a credentialed diabetes educator or certified product trainer.
