Managing and Preventing Diabetes

We can help you live your best life with diabetes

You may have diabetes or high blood sugar, or you may be at risk for developing diabetes. Whatever your current health situation may be, it’s important to take good care of yourself now to help prevent serious health conditions later.

That’s why we have many health and wellness programs available to you. From managing your diet and physical activity to taking control of your stress and anxiety, we can help you find the programs that are right for you. And the best part is these programs are free to our UPMC for Life members!

Your guide to healthy living has all the information you need to be at your best health. View our digital wellness bookletView our digital wellness booklet.

Taking your diabetes medications as prescribed is important. That’s why many UPMC for Life plans offer copays as low as $10 for covered brand-name diabetes medications and coverage through the “donut hole” for covered insulins. See our complete list and start saving today!
