Could you use help managing your diabetes? Will reminders, shared monitoring, feedback and rewards help you to stay on track?

Community Health Options and our partners at Express Scripts are excited to announce the availability of the Diabetes Care Value Program for eligible Members. The Diabetes Care Value program promotes medication adherence and long-term healthy habits by interacting with you via a mobile app called Mango Health.

Remote monitoring will prompt reminders, education and helpful tips to support your self-management, while a rewards program will help you to celebrate building healthy habits.  An additional resource, the Diabetes Therapeutic Resource Center, includes specialty pharmacists that are available to answer questions and provide the highest level of care. The pharmacists are available to provide education and counseling to Members regarding specific therapy needs.

If you are a Community Health Options Member and you’re interested in participating, contact the Diabetes Therapeutic Resource Center at 855-723-6099 to check your eligibility and to request enrollment.

As confirmed cases of COVID-19 continue to be reported, you may be wondering what you can do to avoid exposure to the virus. Until a vaccine is developed, healthcare authorities recommend following the same steps you would take to prevent the spread of other respiratory viruses. That includes:

  • cleaning your hands regularly and thoroughly with an alcohol-based hand rub or washing them with soap and water.
  • Maintaining at least three feet of distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Refraining from touching your eyes, nose and mouth, where the virus can be transmitted into your body.
  • covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze, then disposing of the used tissue immediately.

To avoid misinformation about COVID-19, look to trustworthy sources, such as the CDC, the World Health Organization, and local health departments websites to stay informed.
