The ADA Wants Insurance Companies to Cover Supplies


By: Linda Watts

The ADA hopes to get California Senate Bill 1220 passed by January, 1998. The bill would require insurance carriers to provide coverage for diabetes supplies, equipment and self-management training as deemed necessary by a physician. The bill was prompted by some insurance companies refusals to provide coverage for these basic items necessary for good diabetes control.

The ADA has helped to pass similar legislation in 16 other states. For more information on the Senate Bill, contact ADA representative Lisa Murdock at (888) 342-2383.
