Healthy Companion℠ Program
Our condition management nurses can help you manage your asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure (hypertension), metabolic syndrome, stress, anxiety and depression.
Through this program, some Blue KC members receive education and reminders by mail, while others communicate over the phone with a condition management nurse.
Members who suffer from a catastrophic accident, life-threatening illness, high-risk pregnancy or premature birth may obtain the help of a Blue KC nurse case manager to:
- Develop individualized treatment plans that optimize the health benefits allowed in your Blue KC plan.
- Understand the medical costs associated with your treatment and find available care resources.
- Advocate for your health by coordinating with your caregivers, finding and reviewing treatment alternatives, and helping with discharge planning (if hospitalized).
Nurse case managers are here to help you maximize benefits, provide education about your medical condition and work closely with your healthcare team to coordinate your care.
