Insurance Coverage for Diabetes Education

Fees for Inova Diabetes Center programs are set individually. Many insurance plans cover diabetes education, but it is important you confirm coverage in advance with your insurance company. Call your plan's customer service number and ask if diabetes self-management training is covered.

For most group classes or individual consultations, we bill your insurance company directly. Co-payments, if applicable, are due at the time of your visit. The Preventing Diabetes Program is a self-pay program you pay for at the time of registration.

Our diabetes education program is an outpatient hospital service. Most of our classes and services require a written order or prescription from your doctor, with the exception of Preventing Diabetes. In addition, some health insurance plans require pre-authorization before diabetes self-management consultation services will be covered.
