Question Must my health insurance plan pay for my diabetic supplies and self-management education?

Answer You are entitled to payment of all diabetic supplies and education under NYS law, provided that your plan is subject to NYS Insurance Department jurisdiction. Your plan may not be subject to this Department's jurisdiction if it is a self-insured plan or a union welfare fund. Employer group plans covering employees in more than one state and is subject to collective bargaining do not have to provide this coverage. Medicare Supplement policies do not provide this coverage.
