Advanced Health Care Options for People With Diabetes

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- It's estimated that almost 2.5 million Latinos in the U.S. will be affected by diabetes by 2020, of those, 44% will be over the age of 65. So even just within the Hispanic community, the effects of diabetes are vividly present. While Medicare can cover medical services, the coordination and monitoring of those services is particularly critical to managing complicated medical conditions.

It's widely known that diabetes is a debilitating disease requiring careful and consistent medical attention. What may not be as clear, however, are the solutions to manage the multiple needs of the disease that can range from juggling multiple physicians and treatment plans to coping with the demands of a hectic pace in a fast-food society.

"Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death listed on U.S. death certificates," said Dr. Ana Fuentevilla, Evercare Medical Director. Furthermore, diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure and new cases of blindness, as well as a strong influencer in the cases of high blood pressure, dental disease, heart disease, strokes and amputations (1).

To ensure the proper management of diabetes, it's important to follow the specific treatments prescribed by the primary health care provider and specialists because failure to adhere to them could severely jeopardize one's health. To facilitate the management of what may turn into a multitude of treatments, doctor's appointments and medications often requires special health care and insurance plans developed for people with chronic illnesses in mind. Evercare(R),, a leading provider of Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plans, offers health plans tailored to meet the needs of people living with one or more chronic illnesses who are also eligible for Medicare.

There are several programs tailored to special needs cases, such as for those with limited income or long-term illnesses like diabetes. For example, the Evercare(R) Health Plans for People with Specific Long Term Illnesses are geared to help people with Medicare manage a number of illnesses individually or in combination, such as heart disease, Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), diabetes, severe hypertension, asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), severe arthritis and dementia. These plans feature supplemental benefits and a focus on prevention and early intervention. For patients with delicate health, Evercare plans offer a nurse to coordinate medical services, thus providing a consistent treatment plan which may increase the early detection of potential conditions, and offer better health outcomes and peace of mind for patients and their families.

There may be no simple remedy for controlling diabetes, but there are remedies for balancing the needs to keep the disease in control and reduce medical hassles.
