Local health departments often provide Diabetes Self-Management Education/Training (DSME/T) classes in their communities, but many do not have reimbursement systems in place to bill for and sustain these important services. This webinar will highlight the North Carolina Diabetes Education Recognition Program and show how billing for DSME/T was set up by Wilkes County Health Department, one of the local health departments involved in the program. The webinar will share resources that local health departments and programs can use for developing reimbursement models, while also addressing how the Affordable Care Act impacts diabetes services.
