What is Care Management?
Real healthcare providers -- doctors, nurses, social workers, dietitians and pharmacists – make up our Care Management department. We're here to help you make the best possible decisions about your healthcare.
Our goal is to offer programs and services that guide you to better health and access to high quality care.
We help coordinate your healthcare.
You get support from a registered nurse. You may pay less for medications you take to treat diabetes, coronary artery disease, heart failure, asthma and COPD.
Watch the video to learn about the benefits of working with a personal health coach.
Our nurses have experience with:
Diabetes Prevention Program: OGB members and other adults 18 years of age and older on their plans who are diagnosed with prediabetes or at high risk for type 2 diabetes may be eligible for Omada, a 16-week diabetes prevention program from Blue Cross and Omada Health. The Omada program is designed to help individuals, including those with prediabetes, lose weight and make healthier choices. Combining a professional health coach with an understanding and supportive small group, a flexible online format and a growing pool of healthy resources, Omada is a profound, lifestyle-changing experience.
Primary Care Referral: Studies show that building a long-term relationship with a single doctor can improve your health. Your primary care physician (PCP) is your healthcare team quarterback, coordinating your care and helping ensure you don't get unnecessary tests or treatments. OGB members who don't already have a PCP will get help choosing one from the appropriate Blue Cross network.
Diabetes Care: OGB members diagnosed with diabetes may be eligible for a glucometer and test strips from CVS Caremark at no out-of-pocket cost to help manage their diabetes. You don’t have to enroll in any additional programs, but you must be participating in the Care Management Diabetes program to qualify for test strips. Follow these instructions to claim your no out-of-pocket glucometer and test strips.
If you and your provider disagrees with a clinical decision, you have the right to appeal.
