Public Policy

The U.S.House and Senate have recently introduced the bipartisan Preventing Diabetes in Medicare Act (H.R. 3124/S. 1299), which will allow a dietitian or nutrition professional to provide MNT services for prediabetes. Let members of Congress know that you support them in improving health care access and reducing health care costs associated with diabetes among Medicare beneficiaries.
