As a SelectHealth member, you can talk to a care manager about concerns you may have about your condition—the best part is, it’s already part of your benefits and is available to you at no additional cost. Nurses and social workers are available to assist in coordinating access to support your healthcare needs, understanding your benefits, including answering coverage questions about medications, or providing tools to identify symptoms you may be experiencing.

Care managers are specialized in coordinating care for these conditions, among others:

  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Heart disease
  • High risk pregnancy
  • Mental health concerns
  • Substance abuse 

Sometimes, a little extra help is all we need to manage our healthcare needs. Take it from a SelectHealth member who said of his care manager, “I couldn’t have lowered my A1c without your help. Your calls helped to keep me on track, stay accountable, and not give up.”

Helping you manage your condition is part of our goal to help people live the healthiest lives possible. To talk to a care manager about your urgent or ongoing needs, call 800-442-5305.
