Dealing with a health issue alone can be very difficult. If you're facing a complex medical diagnosis or treatment decision such as surgery, My Medical Ally can help you:

  • Get a virtual second opinion from a leading specialist in the U.S.

  • Receive independent answers to questions abut your diagnosis and treatment plan, and guidance on available treatments.

  • Verify any doctor’s credentials, skills and experience treating your condition

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.

Visit the My Medical Ally website or call: 888-361-3944 Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. C.T.  When prompted, provide company code "NGC".

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. Helps members with diabetes learn how to expertly monitor and improve their blood sugar levels and other symptoms with the help of certified coaches, medications, and in-app tools.

CVS Diabetes Kit for One Copayment (Anthem members only)
When filling your prescriptions, order all of your supplies at the same time, in 90-day quantities and fill at a CVS Pharmacyor 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'll 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: 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 aren't 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 or call 800-982-8161 for more information.

Vida Health provides Anthem members with a free health coach, nutritionist or diabetes expert to help manage chronic conditions, lose weight, reduce stress, and make lifestyle changes that lead to a happier, healthier life. Get access to a health coach, eating plan and smart scale at no cost.
