We need NDSS rebates for the new FreeStyle Libre Diabetes Tester.

The New Abbott FreeStlye Libre, (and similar) is a game changer for people with Diabetes. This device will save diabetics lives, sight and limbs. Not to mention the millions (or billions) of dollars it will save in future hospital bills, social services and the social cost of having people with diabetes going blind and losing their limbs.
However the device currently cost the user about $50 per week ($2600 per year).
The Abbott FreeStyle libre is not currently subsidised by the NDSS (National Diabetes Service Scheme), and this means that it is not affordable to thousands of Australians who could benefit from the device.
The Abbott FreeStyle libre continually monitors the Blood Glucose Levels of diabetics. Helping them better control their diabetes and prevent some of the horrible effects of this disease.
Please sign this petition and help get this device and any other similar device more affordable for diabetics.
Diabetes is not a lifestyle choice; diabetics don’t choose to be diabetic. Its handed to us on a platter and we need to deal with it the best we can. This device (and similar) will help us do that. So if you are only going to sign one petition today, please pick this one as it could help save a life.
I have no affiliation with the "Abbott" company and this petition is not a promotion for them or their products. I am a type 1 diabetic who wants this device available for all Australian no matter what their income.
