The Methods

The Methods

  • An eligible employee is identified to participate as a patient in one or more modules of the program.
  • After enrollment with their Human Resources Department, patients are assigned to work with a certified pharmacist care manager. 
  • Patients are then scheduled to attend the American Diabetes Association (ADA) prescribed educational classes which includes about 9 hours of class time, and their benefit card is activated to waive any co-pays associated with their condition.
  • From that point, patients are required to attend regular meetings with their pharmacist, attend regular visits with their treating physician and have labs drawn at regular intervals.
  • Employees can participate in more than one module of the program and received waived co-pays for medications related to those conditions.
  • All clinical, claims, drug, and humanistic data were tracked by clinicians and researchers.
