State Profiles: Diabetes Self-Management Education and Training

Fact Sheets on Diabetes and DSME/T Coverage

The United States is in the grips of a diabetes epidemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 29 million Americans have diabetes—more than the entire population of Texas. One in 3 adults has prediabetes, placing them at high risk for developing diabetes.

Because people typically manage their diabetes and prediabetes without constant help from a health care professional, it’s important to provide them with tools to monitor their condition and make healthy changes. Diabetes Self-Management Education and Training (DSME/T) gives patients the knowledge and skills necessary for effective diabetes self-care.

Insurance coverage presents one lever for ensuring people can access and receive high-quality DSME/T, and many states require public and private health insurance plans to cover these services. With support from the CDC, ChangeLab Solutions and the Temple University Policy Surveillance Program have developed an interactive webpage and 51 fact sheets (available below for download) that discuss policies from across the country that require DSME/T coverage for patients. Each fact sheet profiles a state or the District of Columbia, providing epidemiological data on diabetes and information about available coverage for DSME/T in that jurisdiction.

Public health professionals and policymakers can use these profiles to understand the patterns, trends, and gaps in DSME/T coverage as well as to identify opportunities for reform. Scroll below to find and download the fact sheet for your jurisdiction, and visit our overview page for general information on DSME/T and the DSME/T policy landscape.
