Diabetes Prevention & Control

Diabetes Prevention & Control

Solid evidence has shown that early and aggressive intervention can reverse diabetes’ course for people with prediabetes and reduce its devastating impact on people already diagnosed with the disease.1

UnitedHealth Group offers a variety of solutions to support people with diabetes or prediabetes.

The Diabetes Prevention Program

The Diabetes Prevention Program is a community-based initiative designed to aid participants in losing a modest amount of weight, with the goal of helping them to avoid developing type 2 diabetes. Participants meet as a group and follow a curriculum to learn practical, everyday steps that can lead to a healthier lifestyle. The Diabetes Prevention Program also can be delivered over the Internet to people whenever and wherever they choose.

The Diabetes Health Plan

The Diabetes Health Plan is a first-of-its-kind program designed specifically to help the rapidly growing number of people with diabetes and prediabetes manage their conditions more effectively, while controlling the escalating costs to employers that insure them.

Going a step beyond traditional wellness programs, the Diabetes Health Plan offers financial rewards for following medically proven preventive steps to help manage diabetes such as having regular blood sugar checks, routine health exams and preventive screenings. The plan reduces or eliminates out-of-pocket expenses for diabetes and prediabetes care, medications and supplies in exchange for participants’ compliance.
