November is National Diabetes Month, and it is estimated that 10.5% of Americans have diabetes. Diabetes is not easy on the wallet—most people with diabetes spend an average of $16,750 per year on medical costs. Fortunately, MotivHealth’s Diabetic Patient Care program can help you significantly reduce your costs on insulin and supplies.
MotivHealth partners with DiaThrive, a local Utah company, to provide free hospital-quality testing supplies to our members, which are delivered to members’ homes monthly. The first kit arrives within 2-3 days, and refill orders arrive within 3-5 days. Click here to view our plan options and frequently asked questions.

Insulin Cost Reduction
If 10.5% of Americans have diabetes, yet why is insulin so expensive? It doesn’t have to be. Through MotivHealth’s Diabetic Patient Care program, members can eliminate their out-of-pocket costs for insulin.*
Though MotivHealth is always happy to assist with diabetes costs and supplies, there are many ways to help prevent type 2 diabetes. Regular exercise and a balanced diet go a long way. Even simple exercises like walking are highly beneficial. If you struggle to find the motivation to exercise, check out MotivHealth’s Steps Program. You can earn $1 for every day you walk 8,000 steps or more, up to 20 days per month towards your HSA. That’s $20 per month or $250 per year that you can earn (counting the extra $10 for December). Your spouse can also participate and together you can earn $500 per year. You can also visit motivhealth.com/motivmagazine for healthy recipes and simple exercise tips.
*Not all insulins are part of the Diabetic Patient Care program. Testing supplies are free if members use our preferred vendors for meters, test strips, and lancets.
This is such a lifesaver (and wallet-saving) program and I’m grateful for the unique MotivHealth approach. Thank you for helping me understand how this works to save both of us money while helping me get the supplies and meds I need..
