As a Diabetes Nurse Specialist in a local clinic, I am providing telehealth once a week. During these visits, I am checking in with people about their food and medications.
Do you have enough food and insulin to last? Most of them answer, “yes, for now”.
Many of them may run out of insulin and supplies in the near future, some as a result of the costs that make essential medications in-affordable. If this is the case, what can we offer them?
We are excited to thank our guest contributor and Diabetes Educator of the Year, Dr. Diana Isaacs, who has provided us with helpful information and a multitude of resources for people in need of low-cost insulin.
In light of the COVID-19 emergency, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), has expanded opportunities to provide remote care to people with diabetes. We have highlighted some recent updates and provided links to helpful resources for your billing team.
Lastly, we are looking towards the future with salivary glucose testing and insights into a past Question of the Week.
I am grateful to be a part of this amazing community of diabetes specialists. Thank you for your care, concern and advocacy.
Be well! Coach Beverly
