Health Insurance Information for Patients

A key part of diabetes self management is accessing health care services that keep you healthy. In general, health care costs for people living with diabetes are significantly higher than costs for people without it. Understanding which services are reimbursed by health insurance will help you plan for your diabetes care and the costs associated with it. Most insurance plans, including Medicare and MediCal, cover Diabetes Self Management Education and Support (DSMES) costs. While the links below are a guide, you should always call your insurance plan for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
