Asthma is common and affects people in different ways. If you have symptoms, it’s important to discuss them with your doctor. Here’s how we can help.
If your asthma is considered low-risk, we’ll give you tips for taking care of yourself year-round. That way, you can better manage your symptoms when they appear.
If your asthma is high-risk, a care manager will call you to talk about your care. These are some of the things you’ll talk about:
COPD is a lung disease. Our care management team works with members who have COPD to help guide them on their paths to better health.
If you are at high risk, a care manager will check in on you to make sure you’re getting the help you need. They’ll talk to you about your treatment. In some cases, you might get a prescription for oxygen therapy or more medicine. If you smoke, your care manager can help you come up with a plan to quit smoking.
CAD is the most common form of heart disease. Cholesterol and other materials can start to collect in your arteries. This makes the heart work harder to do its job.
Tell your doctor if your family has any history of CAD. Our care management team will create a care program to help treat and prevent your symptoms of CAD.
Diabetes can be a lot of work to handle alone. And it's important to learn as much as you can about your diabetes. Our care management program is here for you.

If you are at low risk, we’ll get you the information and help you need to take care of yourself.

Do you ever experience shortness of breath doing everyday activities? If so, you might be experiencing symptoms of heart failure.
