Care Management

Are you or a family member living with a chronic condition such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease? Did you know Blue KC also supports members who suffer from accidents or serious illnesses?

Our highly trained Care Management teams are the "heart" of our health plan, providing specialized care and support to members when they need it most. Whether it's an acute care inpatient episode, management of a chronic condition, or a life altering catastrophic event, our nurses support members throughout the continuum of care.

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.

Case Management

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.

"Gail is patient, helpful and gives me a positive outlook no matter how tough a day I am having. She is dedicated and must genuinely love what she does. My cancer recovery is very tough, and she is always there to answer questions and make it easier for me to get through this."
