Help with a doctor or insurance
Your doctor needs to order diabetes education. If you don’t have a doctor, we can help you find one. Many insurance companies will cover diabetes education. If you do not have insurance, or if your insurance will not cover diabetes education, Hurley Medical Center will help you get the care and education you need.
