The FreeStyle Libre 2 readers will be available in South Africa towards the end of 2024.

Discovery Health Medical Scheme members should continue claiming FreeStyle Libre 2 sensors via CDE, M-KEM, Pharmacy Direct, and Medipost to avoid co-payments (depending on plan type).

If you claim from a pharmacy not listed above, the price of each sensor may be greater than the approved CGM benefit amount, and the amount billed by pharmacy would be for your own account.

How to get the FreeStyle Libre 2 system

Generally, people in the ZA with Type 1 diabetes should be offered reimbursement for sensor-based glucose monitors.1 Some people in the ZA with Type 2 diabetes using multiple insulin injections daily may also be offered reimbursement.2

FreeStyle Libre 2 Sensor

The sensor sends real time glucose readings to your smartphone. It updates the reading every minute and stores up to 8 hours of glucose readings in 15 minute intervals. Designed to be water-resistant, it can be worn for up to 14 days, even during activities like swimming, showering, and exercising.

R 1,089 per sensor*

*Recommended retail price inclusive of VAT

Depending on your medical aid and plan option, your FreeStyle Libre 2 sensors might be reimbursed. We recommend that you reach out to your medical aid for more information.

Discovery Health Medical Scheme offers cover for continuous glucose monitoring sensors up to a monthly amount on all health plans except KeyCare plans.

To qualify for cover, you have to be registered for type 1 diabetes on the Chronic Illness Benefit and a CGM network doctor has to prescribe the device.

Depending on your health plan and age, you might have to pay part of the cost of the sensor from your Medical Savings Account and/or from your own pocket.
