Legislation to Improve Access to Diabetes Self-Management Training

05/21/2018 - U.S. Reps. Diana DeGette (Colo.) and Tom Reed (N.Y.) have introduced the Expanding Access to Diabetes Self-Management Training Act (H.R. 5768), to improve access for Medicare beneficiaries.

The Academy and our partners in the Diabetes Advocacy Alliance worked closely to support the legislation, which addresses barriers to DSMT that Academy members have identified and advocated to change for many years.

Read the bill.
