Disease Management can help you care for patients with chronic health care needs
Disease Management programs are designed to assist PCPs and specialists in caring for members with chronic health care needs. Anthem Blue Cross provides members with continuous education on self-management, assistance in connecting to community resources, and coordination of care by a team of highly qualified professionals whose goal is to create a system of seamless health care interventions and communications for members.
Who is eligible?
Disease Management case managers provide support to members with:
- Behavioral health conditions such as depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and substance use disorder.
- Heart conditions such as congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease and hypertension.
- Pulmonary conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Our case managers use member-centric motivational interviewing to identify and address health risks such as tobacco use and obesity to improve condition-specific outcomes. Interventions are rooted in evidence-based clinical practice guidelines from recognized sources. We implement continuous improvement strategies to increase evaluation, management and health outcomes.
We welcome your referrals. To refer a member to Disease Management:
