Health Insurance Coverage Laws for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Training

We're currently migrating this dataset. To interact with these data, visit our Legacy Site.

More than 30 million US adults have diabetes and about 84 million have prediabetes or are at an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Teaching patients to monitor and manage their diabetes is an important method for controlling this disease. Many states require all public and private health insurance plans to cover diabetes self-management education and training (DSME/T). This map shows which states have laws that require such coverage for both private insurance plans and Medicaid, and provides information on legal requirements for, among other things, when DSME/T coverage is triggered, what specific activities are covered, and the standards that DSME/T must meet. 

Data collection was conducted by the Center for Public Health Law Research, ChangeLab Solutions, and the National Health Law Program.
