Will my insurance cover the cost of this class?

Medicare/Medicaid covers the cost of diabetes self-management education both in the first year of diagnosis, and annually for continuing support.  Most private insurance companies have similar coverage, so be sure to contact your insurance provider to check.

Do I need a referral?

A referral from your healthcare provider is preferred for all participants, and it is required for all Medicare/Medicaid participants.
