Over the years there have been many changes and they are continuing.

The Pharmaceutical Schedule currently lists:-

Pharmacode 2185121 Ketostix Test Strips 50 OP @ $12.00

Pharmacode 2399962 Accu-Chek Ketur-Test Strips 50 OP @ $6.00 (to be delisted 1 March 2018) and supplier has no further stock.

Therefore the only funded product available at present is Ketostix. Supplies are readily available at present.

Looking forward there will be a new product from 1 February 2018, KetoSens Test Strips 10 OP, which can be used with the CareSens Dual Meter, also being listed from 1 February 2018 (pending PHAMRAC Board approval)
