n4a Promotes AAA Role in Diabetes and Care Planning Program Proposals

In a recently proposed update to Medicare physician payment policies, CMS outlined plans to expand and improve Diabetes Self-Management Training and Diabetes Prevention programs as well as care planning and assessment programs for patients with cognitive impairment.

In comments to CMS about the proposal, n4a emphasized the importance of including and supporting AAAs and other Aging Network agencies as key partners in all of these efforts. n4a will continue to weigh in as final rulemaking continues for these and other important health promotion and disease prevention programs.
