Diabetes self-management education includes:

  • Medications
  • Problem solving
  • Community resources and support groups

We also offer:

What Will it Cost?

Charges will vary depending on the length of service and are usually covered by Medicare and private insurance companies. Outpatient Diabetes Services will verify eligibility and benefits with private insurers.

How Can I Contact a CDE?
