Diabetes Management Program
If you are diabetic, you may be eligible to enroll in the United Diabetes Management Program. Participation
in the program involves seven monthly visits with a United Wellness Pharmacist who is specially trained in diabetes medication management. Your pharmacist and physician will work together to evaluate your progress, maximize therapy and improve your health.
Each monthly visit will include a logbook review of your blood sugar values. If you do not currently test your sugar, your pharmacist will help you obtain a blood glucose meter and testing supplies. Fasting lab work measuring A1C, blood pressure and cholesterol will be done at visits one, four and seven. Wellness Pharmacist will report all test results to your doctor’s office, along with suggestions to optimize your therapy.
Medication changes will only be made with approval from your physician. By taking part in this program, you (or eligible family members) can obtain certain generic blood pressure medications, generic cholesterol-lowering drugs such as statins and generic oral diabetes medications from an established list at no cost. The program also includes 100 percent coverage for diabetes supplies (syringes, lancets, pen needles and test strips) for a 30-day supply at a time.
The monthly appointments are required to stay in the Diabetes Management Program. You may even be eligible to continue monthly or quarterly visits after completing the program. Blue Cross of Idaho will pay for your services as part of your benefits—no out-of-pocket costs to you. We look forward to working together to improve your health!
