Bending the Diabetes Cost Trend

A small university with 900 employees identified diabetes as one of their top chronic conditions driving up overall healthcare costs due to poor adherence to care standards and high hospitalizations. To bend their cost trend, they implemented the Diabetes Care Rewards Program.

Implementing the Diabetes Care Rewards Program meant a shift in thinking to provide a benefit enrichment that was confidential for the member and comprehensive in scope to attack the high costs drivers.

In the first year, our client has seen dramatic results as demonstrated by increased adherence to care standards with members’ own doctors and improved medication adherence, the Program yielded significant reductions in both hospital admissions and length of stays for all members with diabetes.
