Letter to CMS Requesting to Temporarily Waive Restrictions Related to the Diabetes Self-Management Training Benefit in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic

March 17, 2020

To: CMS Administrator Seema Verma 

"We strongly urge CMS to consider the items that we have proposed and act immediately to address these barriers to care and to implement these changes nationally for all Medicare beneficiaries with diabetes.
It is vital that all Medicare beneficiaries with diabetes, especially those who are newly diagnosed with diabetes, have access to DSMT services during this critical time. DSMT services, provided by diabetes care and education specialists through our accredited programs, offer essential support for people with diabetes."
