Patients with types 1 diabetes will continue to have subsidised access to fast-acting insulin, with the approval of a new product to replace Fiasp and Fiasp FlexTouch.

On Monday, federal Minister for Health and Aged Care Mark Butler announced that Fiasp Penfill would be added to the PBS from October following negotiations with Novo Nordisk.
