Could you use help managing your diabetes? Will reminders, shared monitoring, feedback and rewards help you to stay on track?

Community Health Options and our partners at Express Scripts are excited to announce the availability of the Diabetes Care Value Program for eligible Members. The Diabetes Care Value program promotes medication adherence and long-term healthy habits by interacting with you via a mobile app called Mango Health.

Remote monitoring will prompt reminders, education and helpful tips to support your self-management, while a rewards program will help you to celebrate building healthy habits.  An additional resource, the Diabetes Therapeutic Resource Center, includes specialty pharmacists that are available to answer questions and provide the highest level of care. The pharmacists are available to provide education and counseling to Members regarding specific therapy needs.

As of May 1, 2020, all Mainers are required to wear a cloth face covering when out in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, per order of Governor Mills. The order identifies public settings as:

  • Indoor spaces that are accessible to the public such as grocery stores, retail stores, pharmacies and healthcare facilities
  • Outdoor spaces such as playgrounds, busy parking lots, and other areas such as lines for takeout service where the public typically gathers in a smaller area
  • Public transportation such as a taxi, Uber, Lyft, ride-sharing or similar service
  • Ferry, bus, or train
  • Any semi-enclosed transit stops or waiting areas

Cloth face coverings are not required for children under age 2, a child in a child-care setting, or for anyone who has trouble breathing or related medical conditions, or who is otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Wearing a cloth face mask is mostly to protect other people from getting sick. Physical distancing, covering your nose and mouth when you sneeze, and hand washing are still the primary way to prevent you from being infected with COVID-19.
