    DoctorSmart Rewards makes it easy to find these high-value providers, so members can save on their out-of-pocket costs.

    But there’s more. DoctorSmart Rewards also gives members a cash incentive for making smart choices about where to get their care. Eligible services include common procedures like colonoscopy, CT scan, mammogram, MRI, and upper GI endoscopy.

  • iHeart ChampionSM
    State-of-the-art care management
    iHeart Champion helps members reduce their bad cholesterol, blood pressure, and risk of heart attacks. The program is a collaboration with Brigham and Women’s Hospital Remote Cardiovascular Health Program. Eligible members find it easy to engage with navigators and digital tools to return impressive results — all without the need for office visits or additional member costs. Among study participants, average results are:
    • 40% reduction in bad cholesterol in 12 weeks
    • Blood pressure values decreased by an average of 30/10

    These reductions would reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
  • Path to Lifestyle Change

    Designed to help members at risk of developing type 2 diabetes

    Path to Lifestyle Change is a lifestyle intervention program that is modeled after the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-endorsed original Diabetes Prevention Program.

    This program helps eligible members to make changes to promote weight loss and healthier living, which can delay or prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. Led by an expert team of lifestyle interventionists and dietitians from Mass General Diabetes Center, participants learn about nutrition, physical activity, and behavioral strategies and receive the education, tools, and support they need to make lasting lifestyle changes. Members access group sessions by phone.

    This program aims for:

    • 7% weight loss
    • 150 minutes of weekly activity

    Accomplishing this goal can reduce the risk of developing diabetes by 58% over 2.8 years and sustain a 34% reduced risk of developing diabetes after 10 years. 1,2  

    How the program works

    Members track activities and outcomes that enable the program’s dietitians to outreach and offer member support with every member, as appropriate.

    • Months 1-6: A minimum of 16 one-hour group phone sessions
    • Months 7-12: Monthly 1-hour sessions to support participants’ healthy behaviors and continued progress toward their goals
    • Year 2: Monthly maintenance sessions to sustain lifestyle skills, behaviors and continued progress toward their goals

    Potential cost savings for members and employers

    In 2017, people with diagnosed diabetes incurred average medical expenditures of $16,750 per year, 2.3 times higher than expenditures in the absence of diabetes.1

    So, when we can help members to live healthier lives and avoid a diabetes diagnosis, we help both members and employers to save in health care costs.
