The TrueLifeCare program was launched in with a cohort of 265 health plan members with diagnosed diabetes. This study tracked medical claims data for three years from the initial launch through December 2015.
The chart below shows the higher rate of Emergency visits for people with diabetes versus those without diabetes. The TLC program is voluntary, and as more people joined over time, the rate of Emergency visits decreased during the second year of the TLC program.
The next chart shows the sharp rapid decrease of Emergency visits among people participating in the TrueLifeCare program. In just one year, the rate among participants decreased by a remarkable 45% – and this was sustained through the second year – reaching nearly the same level as people without diabetes.
