Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD)

Aetna Better Health can help you get care if you have COPD. COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which is a lung disease. A lot of people can live well with COPD. We can help you live well too.

COPD happens slowly over time. People often won’t know there’s a problem. With COPD, people’s lungs don’t work as well as they used to. Some people have worse COPD than others. That’s why everyone gets different kinds of treatment. We’ll work with you and your doctor to find the best treatment for you.

We have a disease management program for members with COPD. Tell us and your doctor if you have lung disease. Call us if your doctor tells you that you have lung disease. We’ll see if you are at low risk or high risk for problems with COPD.

If you’re high risk, a care manager will call you to see if you need more help. The care manager will talk to you about not smoking and about your treatment. Some people need oxygen, medicines or other care.

It is important to learn as much as you can about your COPD.
