    A word for our clients, members and partners

    The cost of necessary diabetes maintenance medications, like insulin, creates a barrier to adherence. The Program promotes adherence to diabetes medications and supplies by removing the copayments for those members who are active in the Program. Members provide very positive feedback about the additional education, guidance, communications and incentives offered through the Program.

    Part of the issue for the member is the high costs of medications. The program promotes adherence to the necessary medications and removes the cost barrier for those members who are active in the program. We get very positive feedback from the members and the hospital saves money on reduced medical claims costs.

    I just wanted to take a minute to thank you and your team for the Abacus Diabetes Care Rewards program which has provided an incredible amount of diabetes treatment support for many of our patients in our Pediatric and Adult Clinics.  Our staff are thrilled when we see have the opportunity to complete the forms for patients (or their parents) who have access to this incomparable benefit.  I presume you know your impact on these families’ lives, but I just felt it was worth you hearing it from a medical provider.  I serve as the center’s Director of Quality and know my sentiment resonates across our providers.

    The Diabetes Program has helped me not only be able to afford my diabetic medicine copays but to improve my overall health. My A1c has reduced, I’ve lost 15 lbs and I am so grateful for this program. Thank you!

    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.
