Who Should Attend

The primary target audience for this initiative consists of medical directors, registered nurses, pharmacy directors, clinical pharmacists, specialty pharmacists, quality directors, as well as network physicians affiliated with various MCOs, health systems, and other payer organizations.

Statement of Need/Program Overview

The true impact of diabetes-related severe hypoglycemia (SH) events is often underestimated by payers, with only approximately 5% of self-reported events among pharmacologically treated patients being captured by health care utilization-based surveillance. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) represents a significant advancement in the precision management of type 2 diabetes (T2D), providing members from diverse demographics, including minority populations, with the ability to receive a virtually uninterrupted stream of information about the current physiology of their disease. However, many providers cite that prior authorizations may delay treatment and negatively impact clinical outcomes. A smart edit featuring an automated look back in claims data for a previous insulin prescription can be used as the criterion for approval with real-time adjudication, easing the administrative burden for payers and providers and streamlining access for members. This approach serves as a basic blueprint for payers to apply the latest evidence in advancing T2D management with optimal outcomes and cost reduction.

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate improved ability to:

  • Review the latest data supporting the use of rtCGM to improve patient outcomes and reduce resource utilization in T1 and T2D
  • Assess the impact of social determinants of health (SDOH) on outcomes in diabetes among low-income and racial/ethnic minority populations
  • Describe the role of diabetes technology in increasing patient engagement and self-management across diverse member populations of varying age, race/ethnicity, income, and insurance type
  • Discuss the positive impact of electronic prior authorization for rtCGM under the pharmacy benefit in terms of provider administrative burden, access, and total cost of care
