To promote quality education for people with diabetes, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) endorses the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support. To support this goal, the ADA Education Recognition Program (ERP) assesses whether applicants meet the National Standards for Diabetes Self Management Education and Support. The Standards are designed to be flexible enough to be applicable in any health care setting, from physicians’ offices and HMOs to clinics and hospital outpatient settings. The ADA ERP is one of two and the most experienced Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) deemed certifying bodies for Diabetes Self Management Training. If you are seeking reimbursement for diabetes education, it is appropriate to apply for ADA Recognition of your diabetes education program or service. The application fee for a single primary site is $1100.00 for a 4-year Recognition cycle. Each additional site costs $100.00, and can be added at any time during the recognition cycle.
For questions regarding the Education Recognition Program, please contact ADA staff at ERP@diabetes.org or 888-232-0822.
