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.
