The help you need with the education you need
Among the challenges of living with diabetes, expenses can be prime among them. Fortunately, there are ways to get the financial assistance you need. During initial assessment, your diabetes educator will provide you with a free blood sugar meter. Be sure and ask for information on community assistance with medication and supplies.
Most insurance plans, including Medicare, cover diabetes education with a doctor’s referral. Check with your health insurer for specific coverage information.
Both Washington State Department of Social & Health Services (DSHS) and Franciscan offer assistance to the uninsured for diabetes services. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call us at 253-426-6753.
