More than 1 in 10 Americans has diabetes. Lifestyle habits, including healthy eating and exercise, have a significant impact on reducing the risk of complications from diabetes. The Villages Health offers the only American Diabetes Association Recognized Diabetes Education program in the region. It is a comprehensive program for individuals with type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. A Certified Diabetes Educator and one of our Registered Dietitians will work with you and your primary care physician to develop a personalized plan through one-on-one appointments and small group classes.
Medicare, UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage and Florida Blue Medicare Advantage cover Diabetes Education with little or no out-of-pocket cost to you. Commercial insurance and Medicare Supplement plan coverage varies. Our team will verify coverage before booking your appointment.
A referral is required for Diabetes Education. If you are not a Villages Health primary care patient, we will send you the paperwork to be completed by your provider.
To learn more about the Diabetes Education program, please call 352-674-1770.
Programs are held throughout the year. When we receive your interest request, our team will reach out to schedule you.
