Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME)
Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) is a proven way, if you have diabetes, to learn the many things you need to know to help manage your condition. If you are diabetic, DSME classes are covered under your health insurance plan, subject to any applicable deductible, co-pay, and co-insurance. These classes provide education on the disease and how it affects your body including how and why changes in physical activity and eating habits are necessary. Education is key for making lifestyle changes. Evidence shows that DSME programs provide the best chance of helping people make needed changes. Talk to your doctor today about attending these classes.
Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)
If you meet the criteria of pre-diabetes, you may attend DPP classes. These classes help lower your risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. You may participate in an approved DPP for free, and you can learn how to improve your health through stress reduction, weight loss, and increased physical activity with the support of a certified lifestyle instructor. This proven and successful 16–week course meets once per week for one hour. After 16 sessions, you will receive at least six monthly follow–up sessions to help you stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you enroll in and attend DPP classes, you will receive 350 Points through Go365. Let your lifestyle coach know you are a participating Go365 member and they will take care of the process. The
KEHP DPP brochure provides more information on the benefits available.
