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.

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 ongoing challenges some members are facing in scheduling and keeping appointments with their Providers, extensions are available by calling the HelpLine.  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.
