NHP's Diabetes Program
Need help dealing with your diabetes? With NHP, you can have your own Diabetes Care Manager. Your Care Manager will answer questions about your benefits, work with your doctors to be sure you are getting the care you need, and stay in contact with you to see how you're doing with your diabetes.
If you have diabetes, call NHP's Member Service Center at 800-462-5449 (toll-free) today and ask to speak to the NHP Diabetes Care Manager to find out more about this program.
