Dear [Decision Maker],
As someone with a personal connection to diabetes, I know that many devastating complications from diabetes can be prevented or delayed by proper diabetes management. Unfortunately, health insurance coverage for many hard working, low income, Arizona families does not cover basic diabetes self-management training (DSMT) that children and adults with diabetes on Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) need to manage their disease. This lack of coverage increases their risk for complications and costly emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and treatment.
