Abstract

The prevalence of type 2 diabetes is increasing, and racial disparities in that prevalence persist. Reimbursement policies do not match the innovative care delivery systems that have been developed. One key policy goal involves reimbursement for diabetes care delivered by physician and nonphysician health care professionals on the same day. Our evidence suggests that this integrated care improves outcomes among patients.
