If you have certain chronic conditions, Blue Shield of California's disease management program can help improve your quality of life by showing you how to take an active role in managing your condition. You can receive interactive online support, educational materials, and access to a nurse any time you have questions.

Participants with higher levels of risk receive additional telephone outreach from a nurse, while others receive more direct interaction with caremanagers and management tools such as symptom monitoring. Blue Shield cares about you as a "whole person", and that's why they use a team of nurses, pharmacists, nutrionist/dieticians, and mental health progessionals to help monitor your progress and your health.

Disease management programs provide support for:

  • Heart failure
  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

When enrolled in the disease management and case management programs, you also have access to the online Care Center 24/7. The Care Center gives you interactive online tools, displays uploaded biometric data from home monitoring, and stores your self-reported health history - enabling better self-management and communication with your nurse care manager.
