It’s Your Health: Diabetes

WebMD/StayWell will inform you of this program if you self-identify that you have diabetes through your health assessment. Or if you have filled an anti-diabetic prescription. You may voluntarily enroll (or disenroll) by contacting WebMD/StayWell at (800) 821-6591 or sending an email to customersupport@webmd.net.
