Our Diabetic Care Program
At McKesson Patient Care Solutions, we understand the diabetic care1 products we supply are important to patients’ quality of life. Our diabetic care program can be described in two words – Products and Service. Healthcare professionals, patients and insurance payers can have peace of mind knowing patients are able to receive diabetic care supplies they need. MPCS bills the patients’ insurance and ships the supplies directly to them.
Our diabetic care program can be used by:
- Home Health Agencies
- Outpatient Wound Care Centers
- Rehabilitation Centers
- Physician Offices
- Health Systems
Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Diabetes can lead to serious complications and premature death. People who have diabetes can take steps to control the disease and lower the risk of complications. We work with healthcare professionals to help patients obtain the supplies needed to comply with their diabetic treatment plan.
