South Dakota Diabetes Education Recognition Program

Diabetes Self-Management Education and Services (DSMES) programs can be recognized by the South Dakota Department of Health (SD DOH), the American Diabetes Association (ADA), or the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). Information regarding each of these programs can be accessed at the bottom of the page and will assist you in determining which certifying body is best for your specific institution. Characteristics such as recognition fee, length of recognition and reimbursement vary per certifying body.

Medicaid reimbursement: In accordance with Administrative Rule of South Dakota 67:16:46:02 programs accredited by AADE will need to receive recognition by the South Dakota Department of Health's Diabetes Education Recognition Program (DERP) in order to be eligible for South Dakota Medicaid reimbursement for DSMES services. However, this process requires the submission of only two AADE-related documents and is detailed below.* Additionally, diabetes self-management education is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and Rural Health Clinic (RHC) service. Please contact the South Dakota Department of Social Services for further questions regarding reimbursement for FQHC and RHC.

Private health plan reimbursement: In accordance with SD Codified Law 58:18:83 and SD Codified Law 58-17-1.2 (pertaining to private health plans) diabetes self-management training and education shall be covered if the training and education is based upon a diabetes program recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) or a diabetes program with a curriculum approved by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) or the South Dakota Department of Health (SD DOH). Programs accredited by AADE will need to receive recognition by the South Dakota Department of Health's Diabetes Education Recognition Program (DERP) in order to be eligible for private health plan reimbursement for DSMES services. This process is detailed below.* Please review the entire codified law for requirements related to educator requirements.

Medicare reimbursement: DSMES recognition through the South Dakota Department of Health is completely free, but is not eligible for Medicare reimbursement. The Department of Health recognition program follows the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education Services.

Why become recognized? Becoming a recognized DSMES program informs both healthcare professionals and the public that the DSMES curriculum and education being provided is evidence-based, high quality and proven effective.

Applying for South Dakota Department of Health Recognition

Application packets for DSMES recognition through the Department of Health, known as the SD Diabetes Education Recognition Program (DERP), are available below.

*As of November 2017, organizations with AADE accreditation, who wish to apply for SD DOH DERP recognition, are no longer required to submit a full application to the SD DERP program. Instead, AADE accredited DSMES programs will simply need to email the following two documents to the South Dakota Department of Health, upon receipt from AADE: 1) Certificate of Accreditation, 2) Annual DEAP (Diabetes Education Accreditation Program) renewal letter/email. Upon receipt of these two documents, the DERP program will issue to the AADE accredited program a Certificate of Recognition from the DERP program, which will be valid for one year and align with the AADE accreditation anniversary date.
