March 23 was Diabetes Alert Day - Information You Can Use

Posted Mar 25 2010 1:56pm
With my goofy travel schedule I missed publishing this but the information is still relevant.

March 23rd was Diabetes Alert Day and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is promoting increased awareness of the diabetes-related preventive services covered by Medicare.

Medicare provides coverage of the following diabetes-related services for qualified Medicare beneficiaries
· Diabetes screening tests,

· Diabetes self-management training (DSMT),

· Medical nutrition therapy (MNT),

· Glaucoma screening (e.g. dilated eye exam with an intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement), and

· Diabetes supplies (e.g. glucose monitoring equipment and therapeutic shoes) and other services (e.g. foot care).
