Wouldn’t it be nice to have more than 2 hours with your CDE or RD cov­ered by Medi­care each year? There’s leg­is­la­tion mov­ing through both houses of Congress that could make that pos­si­ble. If it passes, the bill (cur­rently called “Ex­pand­ing Ac­cess to DSMT”) would cover 6 hours of di­a­betes self-man­age­ment train­ing (DSMT) per year for PWDs. It would also al­low the 10 hours that are cur­rently cov­ered for newly di­ag­nosed PWDs to roll over, so that un­used hours wouldn’t be lost af­ter the first year. Plus, these hours would no longer be sub­ject to Part B cost-shar­ing and de­ductible re­quire­ments, and providers could pre­scribe more time if needed. To con­tact your rep­re­sen­ta­tive and sen­a­tors and urge them to sup­port this bill, go to callmy­congress.com. Visit di­a­betese­d­u­ca­tor.org/ act­now for up­dates.
