Medicare, Diabetes and Nutritional Counseling

Diana DeGette, D (CO), has introduced a bill, H.R.3124 – which would amend title XVIII of the Social Security Act to reduce the occurrence of diabetes in Medicare beneficiaries by extending coverage under Medicare for medical nutrition therapy services to such beneficiaries with pre-diabetes or with risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes.

If you are at risk of type 2 diabetes or have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes and are interested in how this bill may help you, contact your representatives office to learn more or go to www.congress.gov to learn more.
