Patient Care

Learn about our population health, disease management, and condition management programs, along with additional treatment tools available to help you support your patients.

Care Management and Disease Management

We provide programs for members with chronic and complex medical and behavioral health conditions, and those with socioeconomic barriers. Our goal is to help members and their providers better deal with their conditions, follow prescribed treatment plans, and prevent additional complications. 

Care management programs may include care coordination; support of patient-centered medical homes and health homes; non-emergency medical transportation; wellness and prevention programs; chronic care management (disease management) programs; high cost/high risk member management programs, pregnancy programs and a special needs program. 

If a member agrees to participate in any of our Care Management programs, a care manager will notify you by letter or telephone and work to coordinate your patient’s care.
