Diabetes Management Program

The Diabetes Management Program provides an opportunity for employees to be rewarded for taking control of and managing their diabetes.  The goal of the program is to assist participants with controlling blood glucose levels and modifying their lifestyle to prevent or slow the progression of cardiac complications, and diabetic-related eye, kidney, and nerve diseases.

By successfully completing the program requirements, participants will receive appropriate diabetic supplies and diabetic medications at no cost.  In addition, participants may be eligible for reimbursement of up to four diabetes related office visit co-pays.    

Employees and their covered dependents of any age who have been diagnosed with diabetes and are enrolled in the Cigna HMO or UnitedHealthcare PPO medical plan are eligible to participate. Employees and their covered dependents enrolled in the UnitedHealthcare HDHP with H.S.A. medical plan are not eligible to enroll in the Diabetes Management Program.

Several requirements need to be met to gain approval for the Diabetes Management Program.  Please see the Diabetes Management Program checklist and forms for the specific program requirements.  Once all requirements have been met and approved, a program authorization will be given for one year from the date of approval for free diabetic medications and supplies.  Participants must re-certify annually.

At the end of each program authorization year, the participant may be eligible for up to four diabetes-related office visit co-pays.  These office visits must have occurred during the program authorization year and documentation showing the co-payments were paid and that the visits were diabetes related will be required.  Please see the Copay Reimbursement Form for acceptable documentation.  The co-pay reimbursements must be requested within 90 days from the updated program authorization date and submitted all at once.
