Client Support Services
Each diabetic is different and each case is looked at one-by-one to create a care management plan that will work for the client. We try to get each person in long term situations by helping with the enrollment process of state, national and local assistance programs.
The Diabetes Resource Center also can answer your self-management questions and give support. Our staff is up to date on new glucose meters and testing information. We are aware of Indiana and federal laws regarding diabetics and stay up to date on Medicare and Medicaid supply coverage.
With help from physicians across St. Joseph County, the Diabetes Resource Center has been able to place over 200 people into patient assistance programs.

Each company has their own rules and eligibility standards so please contact the Client Services Specialist if you need a referral or assistance.
