Diabetes Management Programs Improve Patient Health

Date:
May 22, 2019

With the rising prevalence of diabetes and prediabetes in our region, we know your patients with these conditions require more time and attention. And they often need additional services and support outside of the office setting.

That’s where we can help. Your BlueShield patients have access to our free diabetes management program so they can get their health on track. From health coaching and coordinating tests and screenings to connecting them with community services, these additional resources help support your care plan.

When your BlueShield patients enroll in this program, you’ll see:

  • Decreased calls and sick, emergency room, and urgent care visits
  • Saved time during office visits
  • Improved overall health and reduction of chronic conditions
  • Improved quality scores, which impact value-based payments

Participating patients appreciate the additional support, with 98% saying they are “very satisfied” with our care management programs. Please call 1-877-878-8785 to enroll your BlueShield patients in our diabetes management program, or click here for more information.

Diabetes Coding

Diabetes coding can be complicated, so we offer guidance in our “Common Diabetes ICD-10 Diagnosis Codes” on our website. This tip sheet includes codes for diabetic complications and codes for other chronic conditions sometimes associated with diabetes. To view it, please click here.
