Diabetes self-management training (DSMT) provides people with diabetes the skills to improve their quality of life, but it’s severely underutilized. In the 115th Congress, House Diabetes Caucus Co-Chairs Tom Reed (R-NY) and Diana DeGette (D-CO) introduced H.R. 5768, the Expanding Access to DSMT Act, legislation to remove barriers to DSMT for Medicare beneficiaries. NCOA is working with a diverse group of stakeholders to advocate for the legislation, which would establish a demonstration program for online DSMT, among other provisions.

Review a fact sheet on the bill, which NCOA wrote with our partners in the Diabetes Advocacy Alliance.
