Department of Veterans Affairs Approves Certification Examination for Diabetes Educators for Reimbursement

(Originally announced March 21, 2009 - Links updated June 2017) The National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators Board of Directors (NCBDE) is very happy to announce that the organization recently received approval for veterans (and other qualified individuals) to use their G.I. Bill education benefits to pay the cost of the Certification Examination for Diabetes Educators (Examination).

The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is authorized to pay only for the Examination, not for other costs of the certification process. Dependents of totally disabled veterans or veterans who died in service can also use this benefit under certain conditions. The VA will send all payments directly to VA beneficiaries to reimburse them for the cost of the Examination.

Please visit the VA web site for additional information or to view a brochure on this benefit.
