We want to help you be as healthy as possible.
Our Disease Management programs can help you take care of chronic sickness. A chronic sickness is when an illness does not go away or lasts a long time. Some examples are asthma and diabetes. When you are sick with a chronic illness, health coaches will call you and mail you materials to help you take care of your condition.
We offer disease management programs to our members who have:
- Coronary artery disease (blocked arteries of the heart)
- COPD (disease that makes it hard to breathe)
- Heart failure
If you have seen a doctor for one of these illnesses, you may be signed up for the disease management program. If you aren’t signed up, you can join by calling 1-800-579-5755. If you are in the program, but don’t want to be, call the same phone number to get out of the program.
