Diabetes Care

A program for self care

Our healthcare professionals work with patients to create a plan for lifelong diabetes management which they can maintain.

How the program works

The diabetes educator and dietitian meet with patients to determine the level of diabetes care required. Appointments focus on patient progress and modifications to achieve set goals.

Insurance coverage

Most insurances, including Medicare and DSHS, include a Diabetes Education benefit. Please contact your plan for coverage details.

Other Services

Dexcom and Freestyle Libre Continuous Gluocose Monitors are available and covered by most insurance if you use insulin.
