Our care management department provides support to members based on each individual’s risks and needs. These care needs are assessed by licensed nurses, social workers and counselors, as well as nonclinical professionals. We use a biopsychosocial (BPS) model to help us identify what care our members need. Then, the integrated case manager performs a health risk assessment to determine the member’s medical, behavioral health and BPS status.
Care managers work with members, their families, primary care physicians (PCPs), psychiatrists, substance abuse counselors or any other health care team members to achieve an efficient and cost-effective care plan. Care management teaches members about their specific diseases and how to prevent symptoms from getting worse. Our goal is to maintain or improve our members’ health.
Our care management programs include:
Pregnancy outreach and high-risk obstetrics
Special health care needs
Behavioral health and substance abuse
Our disease management program helps members manage specific conditions. We assist with:

The conditions in our program include:
Sickle cell anemia

We are dedicated to providing high-quality care for our members. To do this, we monitor and evaluate our performance on a regular basis. This is the responsibility of our Quality Management (QM) department. QM is always making sure we’re doing the right thing for the right reasons.
