This change in Medi-Cal benefit opens more options for patients to choose from in regards to managing their diabetes. For new and existing patients, you will receive a brand new smart and easy to use glucometer from Gojji and continue to receive our clinical support that you have come to love and trust over the years.
The new Gojji meter is delayed due to the delay in Medi-Cal benefit change by the State of California. As of February 17, 2021, the State has not announced a new date for this transition. We will notify our patients and providers the new date as soon as it is announced by the State. Please visit https://www.dhcs.ca.gov/provgovpart/pharmacy/Documents/An-Important-Update-on-Medi-Cal-Rx-02-2021.pdf to learn more.
The new Gojji meter ship date will be determined after the date for the Medi-Cal benefit change is announced by the State of California.

Preveon Health (formerly WeCare) is part of WeCare Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. and is a disease management company that is contracted with selected insurances to assist Providers with Patient care. We also provides diabetic Patients with their testing supplies such as glucometers, test strips, lancets, lancing devices, and control solutions. We have a team of Clinical Pharmacists, Dietitians and Patient Care Specialists that are available to educate and advise Patients on their diabetes, medications and diet. Our goal at Preveon Health is to establish a connection between Patients, Providers and Payers to optimize each Patients diabetic care.

Generally, it will take 24-72 hours for us to get the approval from your Doctor. Once confirmation is received, it will take about 2-3 business days for the package to arrive to your home.
Preveon Health sends all of the Patients' shipments through the United States Postal Service. The package can be sent either as priority mail or first class depending on the weight of the package.
Refill shipments for diabetic supplies will be sent every 3 months. You can contact us when you are running low, or we will contact you 2-3 weeks before your next refill is due.
We DO NOT provide insulin or any other medications to our Patients. These items should still be picked up from your local pharmacy.
Selected insurances have chosen a specific meter to provide their Patients with. Ask your Preveon Health Patient Care Specialist which meter is covered for you.
The meter is simple and user-friendly. If you ever have any difficulty using your meter, please contact us to speak to a Patient Care Specialist.
Various meters will have a 10-20 percent difference in blood sugar readings. This is why we encourage the Patient to always calibrate the meter after a new bottle of test strips has been opened. This control solution will guarantee that the meter is working properly and give the Patient the most accurate readings. Contact your Preveon Health Patient Care Specialist if you need assistance calibrating the meter.
We are only providing the services for Patients under the selected insurance plans. Speak to your Preveon Health Patient Care Specialist about your eligibility. If you currently do not have any health insurance, you can still purchase diabetic testing supplies at your local pharmacy.
At this time we are not able to send supplies outside of the country. If you will be traveling out of the country, we recommend you give us a call ahead of time to receive your testing supplies prior to your travel. If you are temporarily out of state, we are able to ship out your supplies to your out-of-state location. Please note that if this move is permanent, make sure to speak to your local state health plan as your eligibility for Preveon Health may have changed.
Patients have the opportunity to speak to a Dietitian directly regarding their nutrition. An appointment can be scheduled for nutritional counseling by phone or at our clinical office. Education regarding insulin, medications and labs is also available through our Clinical Pharmacists. Speak to a Preveon Health Patient Care Specialist to see what education is right for you.
When diabetes is uncontrolled for a long time, it starts to damage the nerves in the body. The nerves affected are also in the eyes and the feet which can lead to blindness or amputation if not properly treated. This is why it’s important for all diabetic Patients to have an eye and foot exam once a year.
