3 III. DESCRIPTION/BACKGROUND Diabetic self-management training (DSMT) is the process of providing an individual with diabetes and related conditions the education and skills to perform self-care on a day-to-day basis. Self-management education teaches an individual to assess the relationships among medical nutrition therapy, activity level, emotional and physical status, and medications, and then respond appropriately and continually to those factors to achieve and maintain optimal glucose control. In addition to optimizing metabolic control, the goals of diabetes education are to prevent acute and chronic complications and achieve optimal quality of life. Pennsylvania State Mandate Act 98 of 1998 requires coverage of outpatient selfmanagement training and education (including medical nutrition therapy) for the treatment of insulin-dependent diabetes and non-insulin using diabetes. Coverage is also required when a new medication or therapeutic process relating to the person s treatment and/or management of diabetes has been identified as medically necessary by a licensed physician. Diabetic self-management training is an interactive, collaborative process involving individuals, their physician, and instructors. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has developed a set of National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education. DSMT programs must meet national standards in order to be recognized by the ADA. A DSMT instructional team is typically multidisciplinary in nature, but must consist of at least a registered dietitian and a registered nurse. The American Diabetes Association recognizes that DSMT programs may be provided in a variety of healthcare settings, including physicians' offices, clinics, and hospitals. IV. DEFINITIONS ACT 98 OF 1998 refers to a Pennsylvania state mandate that requires coverage of equipment, supplies, and outpatient self-management training and education (including medical nutrition therapy) for the treatment of insulin-dependent diabetes and non-insulin using diabetes. Equipment and supplies include blood glucose monitors, monitor supplies, insulin, injection aides, syringes, insulin infusion devices, pharmacological agents for controlling blood sugar, and orthotics.

4 V. BENEFIT VARIATIONS The existence of this medical policy does not mean that this service is a covered benefit under the member's contract. Benefit determinations should be based in all cases on the applicable contract language. Medical policies do not constitute a description of benefits. A member s individual or group customer benefits govern which services are covered, which are excluded, and which are subject to benefit limits and which require preauthorization. Members and providers should consult the member s benefit information or contact Capital for benefit information. VI. DISCLAIMER Capital s medical policies are developed to assist in administering a member s benefits, do not constitute medical advice and are subject to change. Treating providers are solely responsible for medical advice and treatment of members. Members should discuss any medical policy related to their coverage or condition with their provider and consult their benefit information to determine if the service is covered. If there is a discrepancy between this medical policy and a member s benefit information, the benefit information will govern. Capital considers the information contained in this medical policy to be proprietary and it may only be disseminated as permitted by law. VII.
