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. The DRC attempts to get each person in long term assistance or insurance by facilitating the enrollment process of federal, state, national and local programs.
The Diabetes Resource Center can answer your self-management questions and give support. Our staff is up to date on new glucose meters and testing information. The DRC staff is aware of Indiana and Federal laws regarding diabetics and are current on Medicare and Medicaid supply coverage.
The Diabetes Resource Center also has many resources that will save you money on your medication and supplies. Please check out our resource page.
With help from physicians across the region, the Diabetes Resource Center has been able to place on average 100 people into patient assistance programs a year. This allows local diabetics to get their medications and supplies directly from the pharmaceutical company who manufactures it bringing in over $300,000 worth of medication each year. Each company has their own rules and eligibility standards so please contact the Client Services Manager if you need a referral or assistance at 574-314-5422.
