COVID19 Update
Abacus Health

Maintaining the health and safety of our employees and program members is our top priority during this public health crisis.

The Abacus Health HelpLine is fully operational. HelpLine Advocates are available to answer member’s questions about our programs, assist with program enrollment and schedule a time for members to speak with our clinical staff.  Additionally, our entire staff is fully operational and operating remotely.

Due to the challenge in scheduling/keeping routine appointments, all members in the program with a lab or exam coming due between March 1 and April 30, 2020 will receive a 60-day extension. This ensures that our members continue to have access to their much-needed incentives. We will continue to evaluate this as needed. We understand that not all areas of the country are experiencing healthcare system challenges, so we encourage members to call their doctor to determine if they should keep their scheduled appointment.

Our program members are encouraged to take advantage of the valuable resource they have in our Nurses, Diabetes Educators and Pharmacists. Members can schedule a call with one of our clinicians by calling 800.643.8028.
