Leveraging an opportunity for health plans to support improved patient outcomes in diabetes management with CGM, AMCP sponsored a multifaceted initiative to identify best practices. The program approach consisted of expert interviews, a national payer survey, and an expert panel workshop with clinical experts and managed care stakeholders. In addition to a national webcast to communicate the program findings, this supplement published in the Journal of Managed Care and Specialty Pharmacy summarizes current evidence and consensus recommendations for CGM to support the effective management of diabetes in health plan populations. The supplement also presents the findings from the national payer survey and describes expert-supported health plan best practices around streamlined but evidence-based coverage and access to CGM. Managed care and payer professionals will find this information useful in making collaborative, evidence-based decisions to optimize outcomes among members with diabetes.
