This infographic highlights the value of CGM for positively impacting diabetes care quality, with special consideration given to underserved demographics of patients based on race/ethnicity and age. The piece links to the 2023 AMCP symposium moderated by Dr. Gary Puckrein, President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Minority Quality Forum, where diabetes care disparities and quality were also brought into focus. Also linked is an expert interview with Diana Isaacs, PharmD, with insights on disparities in diabetes care and quality considerations. Guidance is offered on improving CGM access as a means for meeting recent HEDIS quality measures tied to reducing emergency department and hospital use. Using findings from Blue Cross Blue Shield North Carolina as a case study, the infographic serves as a call-to-action for payers to remove manual prior authorizations for CGM under the pharmacy benefit.
