Northrop Grumman wants you to be your best, which is why we offer a Well-being Incentive Program. We encourage you to annually assess your overall health and we reward you for your efforts. Your Northrop Grumman medical plan pays for the cost of your annual physical, related preventative care screenings and eligible preventive drugs – with no out-of-pocket expense.

Diabetes is a complex health condition that requires daily self-management - making healthy food choices, staying physically active, monitoring your blood sugar and taking medications as prescribed.  Northrop Grumman provides programs to help you manage your diabetes care.

CVS Diabetes Kit for One Copayment (Anthem members only)
Through CVS pay only one copayment for your diabetes medication and supplies. When filling your prescriptions for diabetes medications and supplies:

Order all of your supplies at the same time in 90-day quantities and fill at a CVSPharmacy® or through the CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy™. Kits may include the following diabetes medications and supplies:

  • Insulin or oral medication
  • Alcohol wipes
  • Blood glucose test strips
  • Lancets and syringes

If filling at CVS Pharmacy, make sure the pharmacist processes the insulin or oral diabetes medication first. If the insulin or oral diabetes medication is not processed first, the copayment will apply to the other supplies.

If filling at CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy, the pharmacists have been instructed to process the insulin or oral diabetes medication first.

Each time you refill all or part of the diabetes kit, you will pay another copayment. The appropriate copayment will be based on the highest-cost diabetes medication.

The highest-cost medication will apply first, and any additional medications and supplies will be at no cost to you.

Please note: A diabetes medication (insulin or oral) must be included in the kit for the savings to apply. If only supplies are ordered, the appropriate copayment will apply for each item. Blood glucose meters are not included in the diabetes kits.

Diabetes and Your Emotional Health

Managing diabetes is as much mental and emotional as it is physical. With so much of the treatment plan on your shoulders — no one else can eat right and exercise for you — attitude and motivation are crucial. The better you cope emotionally, the better you will do at keeping blood sugar (glucose) under control and preventing complications.
