Our Program and Additional Resources

 

What is the Diabetes Management Program?

At BlueShield, we offer support to members who are living with diabetes or have a pre-diabetes diagnosis. Our program is designed to help members with diabetes take proper care, especially as this is often a lifelong disease.

 

Our case managers are here to help you or a loved one cope with the disease, and plan ahead. Our case managers will address topics including:

  • Questions you should ask your doctor
  • Personalized wellness checklists 
  • Recommended screening tests and treatment goals
  • Ways to manage the condition
  • Free health coaching over the phone
  • Educational materials specific to your type of diabetes
  • Self-management tools, including free glucometers 

For those with pre-diabetes, the goal of the program is to educate members on the risk factors and potential long-term consequences of diabetes, decrease A1C levels to a normal range, and support other positive lifestyle changes.
