legislation image

There are four state laws that focus on North Carolinians with diabetes. One requires that diabetes supplies and education be covered by insurance S.L. 1997-225. Two others address school children with diabetes S.L. 2002-103. North Carolina was among the first states to enact this legislation and continues to look for avenues to advocate for people with diabetes through the Diabetes Advisory Council. The fourth law was passed during the 2013 Legislative Session and requires Public Health, the Division of Medical Assistance and the State Employee Health Plan to work together.

In 2009, the N.C. General Assembly strengthened S.L. 2002-103 by requiring charter schools to comply with state guidelines for school children with diabetes and annual reporting for all schools S.L. 2009-563.

In 2013, the N.C. General Assembly passed a Diabetes Collaboration Bill, S.L. 2013-192 which requires the State Health Department, Medicaid and the State Health Plan to develop a biannual report that describes the diabetes burden and how each entity is addressing diabetes, and makes recommendations about policy changes, including low and no-cost strategies to address diabetes.
