New virtual option for diabetes prevention programs
Priority Health continues to lead the fight against diabetes with a new virtual diabetes prevention program option for commercial group and individual members. The virtual program — called Omada — is available for commercial members only starting the week of Sept. 24. Omada offers the nationally recognized diabetes prevention program proven to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to 71%, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Members with a commercial group or individual plan or Medicare can also continue to access in-person diabetes prevention programs. Both the virtual and in-person options are free to most members.
Priority Health sends emails or letters to select at-risk members twice a year inviting them to participate in a diabetes prevention program. To refer your patients to an in-person or virtual program, visit priorityhealth.com/prevent-diabetes.
We greatly appreciate your continued support of and referral to these programs. Our at-risk patients depend on you to explain their prevention and treatment options. When discussing diabetes prevention with patients, you may use or share the resources below with your patients:
