ejp-photo-nov20131Insurance is complex and diabetes is a complex disease to manage; trying to navigate commercial health plans for the best options can be even more complex with diabetes!

Last year in October, we held a very popular online presentation with Dr. Edmund Pezalla, MD, MPH about key things patients should consider (specifically people with diabetes) when selecting a commercial health plan.

Dr. Pezalla walked us through the different types of  plans (including Medicare), how to determine what type of insurance may be right for your diabetes, what you need to know before you enroll, and what questions you should be asking.

Dr. Pezalla was the Vice President for Pharmaceutical Policy and Strategy in the Office of the Chief Medical Officer at Aetna. He is in the process of writing a book on patient decision making in the insurance enrollment process. We are honored to have him share his expertise.

He is a graduate of Georgetown University College of Arts and Sciences, Georgetown University School of Medicine, and the University of California at Berkeley School of Public Health. He completed his residency in Pediatrics at the Bethesda Naval Hospital and post-doctorate in Health Policy at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

It’s that time of year to prepare for health insurance plans.
