Livongo (Diabetes Management Program)
Diabetes presents an enormous problem for our health care system. Nearly 10 percent of participants in the Christian Brothers Employee Benefit Trust (CBEBT) are currently living with diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association, over 25 percent of the United States population over age 20 is pre-diabetic. Because of this, the Trustees of the CBEBT are committed to making a difference in the lives of people living with diabetes covered by the Trust, and for the employers who pay for their care. As a result, we are excited to announce our collaboration with Livongo Health. You can learn more about Livongo Health on our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page under Livongo (Diabetes Management Program).
Livongo Health offers an innovative diabetes remote monitoring solution aimed at helping patients with diabetes better manage their blood sugar levels, so they can prevent both short and long-term complications and reduce their overall health care costs. Participants who enroll in the program will receive unlimited checking supplies (test strips, lancets and meter). The In Touch® meter tracks strip usage and prompts members with targeted messaging. Livongo Health provides real-time 24/7 interventions by Certified Diabetes Educators for members with dangerous (high and/or low) blood sugar levels.
This program is free of charge to CBEBT participants. It takes less than 10 minutes to register at welcome.livongo.com/MYCBS or call the Livongo Health member support center at 800.945.4355.
This is another example of the CBEBT focusing on the betterment of health for our participants.
