The Diabetes Care Programme, together with your Premier Plus GP, will help you actively manage your diabetes. The programme gives you and your Premier Plus GP access to various tools to monitor and manage your condition and to ensure you get high quality coordinated healthcare and the best outcomes.
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.
Registering for the DiabetesCare programme
Any Discovery Health Medical Scheme member registered on the Chronic Illness Benefit for diabetes can join the Diabetes Care programme.
