Letter Requesting Waiver of In-Person Visit Requirement for Insulin Pump Coverage

February 08, 2021

To Gift Tee, Director, Practitioner Services, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

The Endocrine Society appreciates the efforts taken by CMS to expand telehealth access during the COVID-19 pandemic using the authority granted by the public health emergency declaration. These flexibilities have allowed people with diabetes and other chronic conditions to continue receiving medical care while avoiding unnecessary exposure to COVID-19. We respectfully request that you consider waiving the in-person visit requirements pertaining to coverage of insulin pumps and supplies for the duration of the public health emergency."
