New Advantage Value for Diabetes

Updated: November 1, 2017

Notice for SEGIP Minnesota Advantage Health Plan Members Diagnosed with Diabetes: Beginning January 1, 2018, this benefit reduces member out-of-pocket costs (copays and coinsurance) for high-value medical services that are primarily for diabetes, as well as for certain prescription drugs and testing supplies. High-value services reduce the progression of diabetes and the risk of costly complications. Advantage Value for Diabetes is a pilot program developed jointly by MMB and the state’s participating labor unions.

Eligibility


Adult (18+) SEGIP Advantage Plan members (whether active participant, dependent, early retiree, or former employee who has continued coverage (FEWD, COBRA)) are eligible if they have been diagnosed with Type I or Type II diabetes. Advantage Consumer Directed Health Plan (High-Deductible) members are not eligible.

Benefits


Waived or reduced out-of-pocket member costs for eligible medical services primarily for diabetes, diabetic testing supplies, drugs, and medication therapy management. Please read the Advantage Value for Diabetes benefit description to learn more.
