Our outpatient services will give you the information and support you need to control your diabetes:
- Diabetes management classes
- Meal planning
- Blood glucose monitoring
- Insulin instruction
- Insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor training
- Diabetes during pregnancy
- CDC National Diabetes Prevention Program
- Personal sessions for special needs
Physician referrals and payment
A physician referral by your primary care provider is required. Call your primary care provider to request the required physician referral.
Medicare and many insurance providers pay for diabetes education. Some plans require a co-payment at every visit. We recommend you check with your insurance provider to determine exactly what is covered under your individual plan.
With the right education, you can live an active life with diabetes. To learn more, call 918-331-1143.
