What’s New for 2024

Prevent T2 Condition Management Program

Our Prevent T2 Lifestyle Change Program is a year long program designed for people with prediabetes and who are at high risk for type 2 diabetes and want to lower their risk. The program follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Guidelines.

Prevent T2 empowers individuals by focusing on the following lifestyle and risk-mitigation strategies:

  • Dietary changes – You’ll learn the foods that can help you avoid diabetes Type 2 as well as get great recipes and enjoy community discussion around such foods.
  • Physical activity – Find an exercise or exercises that works with your schedule and desired activity types.
  • Behavior change strategies – Certain behaviors put us at greater risk of developing diabetes Type 2. Similarly, adopting other behaviors can help us in our quest to prevent the condition. Learn the difference and the most efficient ways to change or implement these behaviors.

To be eligible for Prevent T2, you must have a fasting glucose of 100 – 125 mg/dL and a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25.

Provider Directory

Visit our Find a Doctor, Facility or Clinic webpage to access an easy-to-use provider and facility search. Choose State of Wisconsin employees/members as your plan. Or view a PDF of the Provider Directory. To request a printed directory be mailed to you, call 844-625-2208.

Please note – Both provider and the provider facility must be in-network and located in Network Health’s service area for medical services to be covered by your Network Health benefits plan.

If you receive services from an out-of-network provider at a facility that is in-network, the services will not be covered. The same is true if you receive services from an in-network provider at a facility that is out-of-network or out of our service area.

Both provider and provider facility must be in-network and located in Network Health’s service area.

Referrals, Authorizations, Out-of-Network

As a State of Wisconsin member of Network Health, you can see most in-network doctors without a referral. Prior authorization (or prior approval) is required for certain services, procedures, and for out-of-network providers before you receive care. A list of services requiring prior authorization is available here. You can also find the list in your member portal after logging in, under My Materials.

If approval is required for your medical services, your in-network provider will request a prior authorization for you. We will provide you and your provider with written notification of its approval or denial. You are responsible for obtaining required prior authorizations for services provided by Out-of-Network providers or you may be financially responsible for the services. To determine if a service, test, or procedure requires prior authorization or a referral, call 844-625-2208 prior to your appointment.

Emergency and Urgent Care

If you require emergency or urgent care when outside the Network Health service area, seek care at the nearest medical facility. Contact your primary care physician if you need help determining the appropriate level of care. Follow-up care must be received from an in-network provider unless otherwise approved by Network Health.

Mental, Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse

Prior authorization is required for all inpatient services for mental health, behavioral health, or substance abuse services with participating providers. Prior authorizations are not required for outpatient mental health services. For assistance accessing mental health or behavioral health services, please contact Network Health’s Care Management Behavioral Health Department at 866-709-0019. After hours, call your personal doctor.

As a Network Health member, you also have access to telehealth services through MDLIVE®. MDLIVE licensed therapists and board-certified psychiatrists can help you get back to feeling your best if you’re feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or not like yourself – in the privacy of your own home. Common reasons to seek care include the following:

  • New relationships
  • Divorce or separation
  • Parenting challenges
  • New job or stress at work
  • Job loss or retirement
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Experiencing a traumatic event
  • LGBTQ+ support
  • And more

See the Virtual Visits section below for instructions about setting up your MDLIVE account.

Virtual Visits through MDLIVE give you access to nurses, doctors, dermatologists, and behavioral health practitioners from the comfort of your own home.
