Participation and Insurance Coverage

imageIf you are currently under a physician's care for diabetes (regardless of whether or not you are taking oral medication or insulin therapy for the condition), you are eligible to enroll in the Center's programs.

Program tuition is approved for reimbursement by Medicare. The New York State Diabetes Insurance Mandate requires that health insurance policies reimburse for diabetes self-management education. Because health insurance policies differ, please check with your insurance provider on the specifics of your plan's coverage.

Medicare offers two separate benefits for the education of people with diabetes. The Diabetes Self-Management Education benefit and Medical Nutrition Therapy benefit. Both benefits allow for initial education and annual follow-up.

For more information, call the Diabetes Education Center at (516) 663-2350.
