Welcome, Bell County members, to the pilot program of BSW Be Well™ with Diabetes — a new program for Baylor Scott & White Health Plan members with diabetes. Our goal is to help you manage your condition and improve your health.
Keep in mind that everyone's health journey is different, especially with diabetes. You may have some days when it feels like it is more difficult to manage, and some days when it is easier. However, your efforts do make a difference! Ultimately, what matters most is making progress toward your goals.

With access to no-cost diabetes medications and monitoring systems, you won't have to put your health on hold if money gets tight. The BSW Be Well™ Coaching program can identify simple changes that will improve your health—and provide tips on how to make those changes as easy as possible. Having a pharmacist available to answer your questions will help you stay better informed about your medications and how they may be affecting your health.
Good blood sugar control can be a challenge, but you can take control of your numbers. Remember that life's challenges can make good control more difficult, so give yourself the grace to ride out the storm and then get back on track.

Stress can negatively impact blood sugar and can lead to a sense of overwhelm. Find time to relax and enjoy life, whether that is being with friends or family, taking a nice walk in the park, being kind to a stranger, listening to a fun podcast or singing out loud on your way to work. Make it a point to make yourself (and others) smile and remember the feeling of joy.
