Update: 2018 Diabetic Utilization Management for Small Group, Individual and Essential Plan Members

Step Therapy WILL NOT be implemented for targeted diabetic supplies—glucose meters and test strips—in 2018 for Small Groups, Individuals and Essential Plan members, as previously announced. 

Step Therapy for these supplies will begin in 2019.

Step Therapy on targeted diabetic drugs WILL still be implemented on January 1, 2018, and we will be notifying the existing users of the targeted diabetic drugs about the change this month. 

Please contact your account consultant with any questions.
