ANOTHER GLUCOMETER ADDED TO NHF INDIVIDUAL BENEFITS PROGRAMME

ANOTHER GLUCOMETER ADDED TO NHF INDIVIDUAL BENEFITS PROGRAMME

National Health Fund (NHF) beneficiaries now have a total of eleven glucometers to choose from, as effective today (January 28, 2008) one new glucometer and associated diabetic supplies were added to the NHF/Distributors Diabetic Supplies Programme.The new glucometer added is the TRUEread Glucometer.

The TRUEread glucometer and blood glucose test strips are distributed by T. Geddes Grant. The test strips are packaged in 50s and the NHF subsidy is $1,693.01 per pack.

The provision of glucometers to NHF beneficiaries is the result of a unique partnership between the NHF, a public sector entity, and the private sector distributors of these instruments.Glucometers are needed by diabetic patients to measure their blood glucose (sugar) levels so as to properly manage their condition.

Under the NHF/Distributors Diabetic Supplies Programme, the distributors have agreed to provide glucometers free of charge to diabetic patients and the NHF susidises the test strips and other items used in the measuring process.The programme began in November 2005.

NHF beneficiaries enrolled for diabetes should seek advice from their medical doctor or pharmacist on the purpose and use of these devices and decide on the specific device they wish to obtain, before contacting the NHF with their request.
