Diabetes Prevention Program:
OGB members who are diagnosed with prediabetes or at high risk for type
2 diabetes may be eligible for Prevent, a 16-week diabetes
prevention program from Blue Cross and Omada Health. The Prevent
program is designed to help individuals, including those with
prediabetes, lose weight and make healthier choices. Combining a
professional health coach with an understanding and supportive small
group, a flexible online format and a growing pool of healthy
resources, Prevent is a profound, lifestyle-changing experience.
Primary Care Referral:
Studies show that building a long-term relationship with a single
doctor can improve your health. Your primary care physician (PCP) is
your healthcare team quarterback, coordinating your care and helping
ensure you don't get unnecessary tests or treatments. OGB members who
don't already have a PCP will get help choosing one from the
appropriate Blue Cross network.
