Be an advocate for your health with My Medical Ally.

If you are facing a serious medical condition or considering surgery, finding the right doctor is important. But navigating the healthcare system can be difficult and stressful. My Medical Ally can help you:

    • Find the best doctors and hospitals in your area and insurance network
    • Verify any doctor’s credentials, skills and experience treating your condition
    • Get a second opinion from top specialists, either in person or virtually
    • Connect with experts on your diagnosis from leading medical institutions

Before you say "yes" to surgery, My Medical Ally can help you weigh the risks, benefits and alternative treatment options that could work best for you. Even if you decide against My Medical Ally’s recommendation, you may qualify for a $400 prepaid card or $400 Health Savings Account (HSA) contribution (provided by My Medical Ally) if the service is used with respect to certain surgical decisions.

Diabetes Resources

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. The Vida Health Program offers diabetes experts that help manage weight, stress, blood sugar levels and any lifestyle-related changes that may adversely impact your health with the goal of giving you a happier, healthier life. Vida will develop a personal plan and guide you every step of the way with tools and diabetic supplies to help you create healthy habits.  You can sync devices – like blood sugar meters, fitness trackers and scales – to monitor your progress in the Vida Health app. Anthem participants can access these services at no charge

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. Visit NGCare’s Compsych Guidance Resources website for more information or call 800-982-8161.

Health Coaching and Weight Management
