Dear [Decision Maker],
Please support HB 2246. 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 need to manage their disease. Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System's (AHCCCS) lack of coverage increases risks for devastating complications and costly emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and treatment. As your constituent, I urge you to support House Bill 2246. This legislation would provide access to diabetes education to Arizonans, and passed the House Health and Human Services committee unanimously.
