Pharmacy Benefits Savings Program

We are excited to share that starting August 1, 2020, CHRISTUS Health has created a new kind of Diabetes Care Program that will provide Associates with more coordinated care and will save them money.

We will be reaching out directly to anyone enrolled in our health plan who has been selected to participate, which includes those currently taking one of the following qualifying prescription medications to treat their Diabetes:
  • Lantus
  • Basaglar
  • Toujeo
  • Humalog
  • Admelog
  • Insulin lispro
  • Trulicity
  • Bydureon
  • Victoza
  • Januvia
  • Jardiance
  • Janumet

However, we wanted to let all our health plan members with Diabetes know about the program, which will provide an additional Diabetes management telehealth visit with CHRISTUS physician Dr. David Tobias, and will send these medications straight to members’ homes, at no cost.
While this program comes with a requirement to have a visit with Dr. Tobias before these prescriptions are filled, we are excited about this opportunity to help our Associates and their families save money and increase their access to medical support.  CHRISTUS estimates that this program will save Associates $650,000 a year, and that it will save our health plan money as well. We are proud of this first-of-its kind program at CHRISTUS Health and look forward to seeing all the benefits it brings to our Associates and their loved ones on their health care journeys.
