The DCP seeks to aid in early detection of pre-diabetes or diabetes and provides an integrated and sustainable healthcare journey for our policyholders. It is a 6-month programme covering various health assessments, GP consultations, diabetes counselling and standard medications. With early intervention, Diabetes can be managed with appropriate medical treatment and lifestyle changes.

Who is eligible for the Diabetes Care Programme?
The Diabetes Care Programme (DCP) is offered exclusively to PRUPanel Connect (PPC) policyholders (PRUExtra Premier, PRUExtra Premier CoPay or PRUExtra Preferred CoPay policies). PPC policyholders with elevated Blood Sugar Test and Diabetes Entry Screening Test (HbA1C) results will be eligible for the DCP.

Should your Blood Sugar Test result appears elevated, you will be offered a Diabetes Entry Screening Test (HbA1c) at S$15.00 nett. HbA1c is a blood test to diagnose Diabetes, conducted at your preferred clinic. Test result will be available at the same clinic within 2 working days (excluding public holidays and weekends). Fasting from midnight before the appointment is mandatory to yield more reliable results. Depending on the result of the blood test, a dedicated nurse under the Primary Care Network team will discuss the results with you and offer the DCP accordingly.
The 6-month DCP includes a pre-consultation and 3 GP consultations with standard medications and a primary care network team to track and guide your progress.
During the pre-consultation, an electrocardiogram (ECG), blood and urine tests will be provided before you attend your first diabetic counselling session. The test results will be reviewed by the GP during the first consultation.
Each GP consultation will include a capillary blood glucose test and a two-month supply of standard medications. However, during the second GP consultation, you will undergo additional eye and foot screens.
On the third GP consultation, you will be advised on future treatment options and provided with a diabetic counselling session. A final two-months' supply of standard medication will be provided to you and this will conclude the 6-month DCP.
Do I need to fast prior to my appointment?
Fasting from midnight before the appointment date is mandatory, to yield more reliable results. If you are taking regular medications, please continue to take them as prescribed, but only with water.
