What we're doing
Improving access to care so that all people with diabetes can afford and receive the support they need to control their disease has been a longstanding commitment of Roche Diabetes Care. We focus our expertise, capabilities and resources in areas where we can make the most difference.
Among the ways Roche Diabetes Care is working to increase access:
- Savings initiatives are available through the pharmacy, online retailers like Amazon, as well as home-delivery subscription services. For many, paying for diabetes supplies is a constant source of worry. No matter your situation, if you have insurance or not, we've got you covered.
- Easy, 24/7 access to coaching from trained experts. The diabetes coaching program available through our mySugr app is accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE DEAP).
- Free, unlimited access to the mySugr PRO app—first made available during 2020 and the COVID-19 lockdowns, and now when paired with selected Accu-Chek meters.10
- Partnerships with ADA, JDRF and others to increase access to care and reduce health disparities through national programs.
- Type 2 diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate across the country and the world. To help those newly diagnosed, we partnered with Beyond Type 2 to create an educational pamphlet called “New to Type 2 Diabetes” in English and Spanish.
At Roche Diabetes Care, supporting the diabetes community and advocacy efforts is a top priority. We donate annually to educational and research programs throughout the country.
