People with Diabetes Guaranteed Health Insurance Claims Rights
American Diabetes Association Issues Statement on New Insurance Claims Regulations
The American Diabetes Association applauds the new White House rule which will help people with diabetes and other chronic diseases appeal the denials of health insurance claims. This rule comes under the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The rules will help simplify the denial process and create consistency in all 50 states.
“In order to stay healthy, people with diabetes have to manage their disease with supplies like test strips, meters and insulin,” said Nash Childs, PE, Chair of the Board, American Diabetes Association.
“Diabetes is a costly disease and without good coverage, the costs can make it difficult to manage properly. It is important that people with diabetes are treated fairly and given the opportunity to appeal any claims that are denied. The American Diabetes Association is grateful to the Obama administration for recognizing the need to make this available to everyone.”
The American Diabetes Association is leading the fight to Stop Diabetes and its deadly consequences and fighting for those affected by diabetes. The Association funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes; delivers services to hundreds of communities; provides objective and credible information; and gives voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. Founded in 1940, our mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. For more information please call the American Diabetes Association at 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383) or visit www.diabetes.org. Information from both these sources is available in English and Spanish.
