CVS/pharmacy reminds diabetes patients on importance of regular testing
WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS/pharmacy is reminding patients with diabetes that one of the most important ways they can manage their disease is to perform regular testing of their blood-sugar levels.
While the number of providers that will accept Medicare coverage for diabetes testing supplies is expected to decline after July 1, 2013 because of Medicare changes, CVS/pharmacy is informing those treating diabetes it will continue to accept Medicare Part B coverage for test strips and other diabetes testing supplies.
"More than 25 million people in the United States have diabetes, and every 17 seconds, another American is diagnosed with diabetes, so it is critical that patients continue to have affordable access to diabetes testing supplies to help them manage their disease," stated Papatya Tankut, VP pharmacy affairs at CVS Caremark. "CVS/pharmacy is committed to ensuring that Medicare patients can use their insurance coverage for test strips and other diabetes supplies. We also offer 90-day supplies of prescription test strips at the same low price as mail order."
Another resource CVS/pharmacy offers patients with diabetes is the ExtraCare Advantage for Diabetes program, which has helped more than 2 million members save money and better manage the disease since 2010, the company stated. The program is free and open to all members of the CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare savings and rewards program.
Cardholders can sign up at CVS.com/Diabetes. Once enrolled, patients and caregivers can earn double ExtraBucks Rewards on more than 100 products used to manage diabetes, and receive additional offers through an online newsletter and register receipts. Members also can log on to CVS.com/ExtraCare or access the CVS mobile app to view personalized ExtraSavings and ExtraBucks Rewards that are available, and choose to "print" or "send to card" their coupon savings and ExtraBucks Rewards.
Take Care Health System makes donation to help further NP education
CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — Take Care Health Systems, which is owned by Walgreens, has made a “founder’s gift” of $100,000 to the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Foundation to help further nurse practitioner education by supporting the Foundation’s Scholarship and Grant Fund.
As leaders in primary and acute care, the 140,000 NPs in the United States play a vital role in the healthcare system and are a key component of the solution for increasing the public’s access to high-quality, affordable care post-reform.
“Since its inception, Take Care has been committed to advancing the visibility and role of nurse practitioners, serving as a strong advocate for the profession and an employer of choice,” stated Sandy Ryan, chief nurse practitioner officer for Take Care Health Systems. “We are longtime supporters of the AANP and the Foundation. Our shared vision and collaborative efforts have benefitted nurse practitioners nationwide, and more importantly, the patients we serve. We’re proud to be the organization’s lead benefactor.”
The growing national shortage of primary care providers, in addition to the increasing number of aging baby boomers, is placing a high demand on medical care.
“Support for this fund helps make quality healthcare delivery a possibility for millions of Americans,” added Kay Todd, AANP executive director.
