NDPERS is pleased to offer a Diabetes Management wellness program. This service is provided by pharmacists and other health professionals throughout the state. The North Dakota Pharmacy Service Corporation administers this program.

The Diabetes Management program focuses on helping members better understand and control this harmful disease. There will be a series of up to six visits over a 12-month period with a designated provider selected by the member. The visits will take from 30-60 minutes to complete. The provider will review the member’s health history, diabetes goals, recent lab results, and all of their current medications. The provider will then educate the member on their health conditions, make recommendations to improve their medication therapy, and refer them to other health care providers such as diet or eye specialists if needed. Information will be shared with the member’s doctor to make sure that everything is done to meet their medication and health goals. The member’s health will be improved by utilizing the specialties of a variety of health care professionals.

Members will benefit from this program in multiple ways. Most importantly, their overall health will be improved. Secondly, members participating and complying with the requirements of the program will receive quarterly reimbursements for out-of-pocket co-pays (currently $20 for brand name medications and $5 for generic medications) spent on diabetic medications and certain medications used for kidney protection. Members can improve their physical and financial health by enrolling in this program!

Enrollment in this program is ongoing. Members must be diagnosed with a type of diabetes in order to participate in the program. For additional information, you can call the Clinical Coordinator, at 1-877-364-3932. The entire cost of the program is paid by NDPERS.
