Health Plan Design Solutions to Improve Diabetes Outcomes

The Diabetes Leadership Council partners with employers, employer organizations, and benefit consultants and proposes simple solutions to reduce plan risk and out-of-pocket costs for employees and their dependents:

  • Insulin exemption: adding insulin to a list of medicines that are covered during the deductible phase
  • Discount and rebate sharing: passing through manufacturer’s rebates to employees at the pharmacy
  • Co-payments: employee cost sharing through reasonable, predictable co-payments instead of variable coinsurance
  • Technology access: cover all FDA-approved diabetes devices and technologies

DLC has teamed up with JDRF and their Coverage2Control initiative to raise employer awareness and promote implementation of these value-based insurance design features — improving diabetes care quality with coverage that reduces overall plan costs and mitigates risks to employers and their employees.
