[No authors listed]


This final rule implements section 4105 of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 (BBA) by expanding Medicare coverage for outpatient diabetes self-management training and establishes outcome measurements for evaluating the improvement of the health status of Medicare beneficiaries with diabetes. These services include education and training furnished to a beneficiary with diabetes by an approved entity deemed to meet certain quality standards established in this final rule. The physician (or qualified nonphysician practitioner) treating the beneficiary's diabetes must certify that these services are needed as part of the beneficiary's comprehensive plan of care.
