Following an exciting midterm election season, Congress is looking ahead to the new congress set to start in early January. This webinar will provide a policy overview of what’s currently happening in Washington and what to expect as the new congressional session takes shape. The webinar will focus on the status of the Expanding Access to DSMT Act (H.R. 5768, S. 3366) and how we are already laying the groundwork for the upcoming congressional session. The webinar will address any “need to know” regulatory changes for 2019, including preliminary updates from the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule.
Participants will be able to discuss the provisions of the Expanding Access to DSMT Act, understand the outcome of the midterm elections, and anticipate legislative priorities in the 116th Congress.
This is a knowledge-based learning activity. This 60-minute online session includes a presentation followed by a question and answer period.
At the end of this presentation, participants will
be able to:
-- Describe the Expanding Access to DSMT bill (H.R. 5768, S. 3366).
-- Discuss the Nov 6 midterm election results and what this means for the new Congress starting in January.
-- Identify other federal policies that may impact diabetes educators.
-- Discuss how diabetes educators can influence diabetes-related legislation and other policies that may directly impact diabetes outcomes.
