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 offer many free health and wellness programs to help you with everything from managing diet and physical activity to taking control of stress and anxiety. We can work with you to find the programs that are right for you.
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.
Save money on diabetes medications and insulins
Taking your diabetes medications as prescribed is important. 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.
