Connecting plan members with the expert help they need
At Medavie Blue Cross, we help members living with diabetes manage their condition by making information, tools and resources readily available and accessible.
Our Diabetes Care program empowers plan members to take charge of their condition by providing convenient, all-in-one access to a glucose monitoring tool, home-delivered test strips, and the one-on-one counselling and education services of a health coach team. The program is just one of the innovative health services offered through our Connected Care digital health platform and is accessible through our website or mobile app. Here’s a quote from one of our Diabetes Care program participants:
“For the last six months, I had the pleasure of working with Brittany Brown, a wonderful nutritionist from the 360Care diabetes coaching program offered by Medavie Blue Cross. Brittany provided warm and encouraging support to me as I adjusted to my recent type 2 diabetes diagnosis. I lost 27 pounds and gained a ton of confidence with her skillful coaching. Her approach was very focused on balance and sustainability - avoiding labelling food as good or bad. In truth, I felt more like I was going to a really good therapist than to a dietician. I wasn’t sure what to expect from diabetes coaching, but I am very glad I signed up. Brittany is a gem. “ - R.S.
Your benefit plan may include reimbursement for the services of a health coach, such as those found in the Diabetes Care program.
This is called our Managing Chronic Disease benefit, and it can help members better understand their condition, develop a personalized treatment plan, learn how to manage symptoms, and receive training and support in using necessary medical equipment.
