Blood glucose monitors for diabetics

June 2023

Intro – supporting diabetic members, monitors are an important part of staying healthy…

“If you’re a person living with diabetes in Australia, then you might already be aware that finding effective private health cover with an ongoing medical condition can often be a difficult task.” HCi does not stop diabetics becoming members, nor change additional premiums to them. However, a 12 month pre-existing waiting period may apply for new and switching members.

Paying for diabetes

 

“Diabetes is, mostly, a self-managed condition.

That’s why things like your insulin pump, medicine, glucose monitor, test strips, meters and dietary education should each be carefully considered when choosing the right level of insurance, as most health insurers will help cover the cost of these items.

 insulin pumps are covered under both hospital and general cover.

Depending on your level of cover, this means that if you have a diabetes-related incident, become hospitalised, and the hospital gives you an insulin pump, your health fund must cover:

  • The hospital accommodation fees

  • Doctor fees

  • Cost of the insulin pump.

Other situations may not require you to be hospitalised to receive a pump, so this is where you have to check with your health fund.

Repairs may be covered under your product warranty, but if this isn’t the case, you can check with your health fund to see how much they may be able to cover.”
