Now, more than ever, people living with diabetes need to come together to stand up for effective diabetes policy. The Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition (DPAC) makes it easy to keep policy makers’ attention on people with diabetes.
As patients and constituents, our voices need to be an ongoing part of the policy conversation. Diabetes advocacy is like diabetes care; both are long-term processes with no quick fixes. Diabetes is not “once and done,” our advocacy can’t be either.
ACT NOW: Diabetes Access Matters
A recent decision by UnitedHealthCare has ignited a movement in the diabetes community called #DiabetesAccessMatters. Let insurers know that restricting access to the treatments prescribed by healthcare professionals based on the ADA Standards of Care is unacceptable.
