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

  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

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.”
