U.S. Senators Introduce Legislation to Improve Access to Diabetes Self-Management Training

08/23/2018 - U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.) and Susan Collins (Maine) have introduced the Expanding Access to Diabetes Self-Management Training Act of 2018 to improve access for Medicare beneficiaries.

Companion bipartisan legislation was introduced by Reps. Diana DeGette (Colo.) and Tom Reed (N.Y.) in May.

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.
