Diabetes Care PATH Program

A diagnosis of diabetes can be overwhelming. There is so much to learn and remember in order to keep your condition under good control. We are here to help. Our members diagnosed with diabetes may be eligible to join our Diabetes Care PATH program. As a program member, you may receive educational materials related to medicines, treatments and more. Each year, a personalized report will also be sent to both you and your doctor summarizing test results from the past year and advising which exams may be overdue.
