A collaboration to prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Our long-standing relationship with Magellan Rx Management (MRx) has added years to our members' lives. Consistent with the goal of helping us live healthier, more vibrant lives, an additional service to help prevent or delay Type 2 Diabetes is available now through MRx. We are now enrolling participants for the Diabetes Prevention Program recognized by the CDC to help prevent or delay Type 2 Diabetes.

MRx Navigate wellness coaches are trained in The CDC-recognized curriculum and are here to help you make lasting changes to your daily life. Coaching around healthy eating, adding more physical activity to your routine, and improving coping skills, are a few ways our wellness coaches can support you in living a healthier, more vibrant life.
