When you begin our program, we will work with you to develop a teaching plan tailored specifically for you, and we will help you set goals that will make living with diabetes more manageable. Feel free to bring a family member with you to your appointments. Physician referral is required. Medicare covers the cost of this program. Most other insurers provide reimbursement, but many plans require authorization before you can be seen
To best meet your needs, we provide the following teaching options:
Individual Consultation: Individual instruction is available for focused topics such as home blood glucose monitoring, meal planning, carbohydrate counting, insulin use, and intensive management. This is a perfect setting for pregnant women and for people with hearing or visual impairments.
Modules: All aspects of diabetes self-management are covered during this group class that consists of 4 two-hour sessions. For your convenience, morning and evening sessions are available.
Support Groups: We offer evening support groups for adults with diabetes. Meetings are free and are held on a monthly basis. We encourage you to invite family members and friends to join you at the group sessions.
