DiabetesCare

Our DiabetesCare programme, together with your Premier Plus GP, will help you actively manage your diabetes. A Premier Plus GP is a network GP that has contracted with us on quality-based metrics.

The DiabetesCare programme is based on clinical and lifestyle guidelines. The programme gives you and your Premier Plus GP access to various tools to monitor and manage your condition and to ensure you have access to high-quality coordinated care.

You and your GP can track progress on a personalised dashboard displaying your unique Diabetes Management Score. This will help to identify the steps you should take to manage your condition and stay healthy over time.

The programme also unlocks cover for valuable healthcare services from healthcare providers like dietitians and biokineticists. Any Discovery Health Medical Scheme member registered on the Chronic Illness Benefit for diabetes can join the DiabetesCare programme.

If you are on a Priority, Saver, Smart, Core or KeyCare plan, you must use a Premier Plus GP to manage your condition to avoid a 20% co-payment.
