Newly launched FreeStyle Libre 2 Sensors enter the Drug Tariff and DND list from November 2020

October 28, 2020

The new FreeStyle Libre 2 Sensors recently launched by Abbott Diabetes Care Ltd have been added to the Appliances section in Part IXA of the November 2020 Drug Tariff and included in the list of Drugs for which Discount is Not Deducted (DND). The introduction of the second-generation FreeStyle Libre 2 Flash Glucose Monitoring system follows the launch of the original FreeStyle Libre system which saw a growth in prescribing after extra NHS funding was made available from April 2019. As there is no discount offered by the manufacturer for purchases of the FreeStyle Libre 2 Sensors, following representations by PSNC to avoid contractors dispensing this appliance at a loss, the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) agreed to its addition to the DND list.

FreeStyle Libre 2 Sensors are not interchangeable with FreeStyle Libre Sensors and require a different reader or the FreeStyle LibreLink app to scan and receive the results. The arrangements for ordering the FreeStyle Libre 2 sensors remain the same as for the original sensors – via the Abbott Diabetes Care pharmacy ordering portal.
