Rite Aid rolls out Diabetes Control Program in Cleveland

BY Alaric DeArment

CLEVELAND — People with diabetes in Cleveland enrolled in UnitedHealthcare employer-sponsored health plans can obtain free diabetes management services from Rite Aid, the retail pharmacy chain said Friday.

The chain’s pharmacists are participating in the Diabetes Control Program, part of UnitedHealth Group’s Diabetes Prevention and Control Alliance, which is aimed at addressing the problem of Type 2 diabetes and prediabetes.

The program is available at 25 Rite Aid stores in the city, allowing people with the condition enrolled in it to connect with pharmacists trained in diabetes care and medication therapy management and receive private, one-on-one consultations that provide education and support.

Rite Aid began offering similar services as part of the Diabetes Control Program at 27 of its stores to residents of Long Island, N.Y., last month.
