Managing Your Diabetes

It's easy to feel overwhelmed by all of the medical terms and tests your doctor tells you about. You don't have to be. Our diabetes management program can help you:

  • Control diabetes
  • Be as active as you can

The program is offered at no additional cost to eligible members.

We believe that the more you learn about diabetes, the better equipped you will be to manage your care, be active and avoid complications. When you enroll in our diabetes program, here is what you will receive:

  • New member packet that contains additional information on the program and how to manage your diabetes.
  • Telephone access to a nurse, who will answer your questions about diabetes.
  • Condition management services. A nurse will work with your doctor to help you develop a treatment plan, answer questions, and support your progress.

Members who want to find out if they are eligible for the program should call 888-264-8648.
