Condition Care is all about you

We’re here to help you learn more about your health, keeping your and your family’s needs in mind at every step. Our Condition Care (CNDC) programs give you the chance to ask questions about a condition that affects you, get information about benefits, and help connect you with local resources.

How it works

Our CNDC case managers are registered nurses. They’ll help you to better manage conditions that may impact your or your family’s health. The goal is to improve quality of life.

When joining one of our CNDC programs, a CNDC case manager will:

  • Help you create health goals and make a plan to reach them
  • Coach you and support you through one-on-one phone calls
  • Track your progress
  • Provide information about local support and caregivers.
  • Answer questions about specific conditions and/or treatment plans (ways to help with health issues).
  • Send you materials to learn about your condition and overall health and wellness
  • Coordinate your care with your health care providers, like helping you with:
    • Making appointments
    • Getting to health care provider visits
    • Referring you to specialists in our health plan, if needed
    • Getting any medical equipment you may need

What programs do we offer?

We offer health care and support services for members with any of these conditions:

Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disease. It’s also the most common form of dementia. Dementia is a general term used for a group of symptoms. Signs and symptoms of dementia affect a person’s memory, thinking, and reasoning skills.

For members with long-term care benefits, we can help you by making sure you’re getting follow-up care and taking your medications.

Asthma is a long-term condition that makes it hard to get air into the lungs. Asthma may cause wheezing, tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, and coughing.

We can give you an asthma action plan to be completed by a healthcare provider. The action plan can help you monitor the condition. It’s a good idea to stay away from triggers and that medication is managed.

Taking care of your heart is one of the best things you can do for good health. The heart pumps blood into the whole body. Having CHF means the heart can’t pump as hard as it should.

We can help you understand CHF better. That way, you and your healthcare provider(s) can work together to help with overall well-being.

Heart Failure


When to Call a Doctor

The heart is only the size of a fist, but it’s one of the most important muscles in the body. Arteries throughout the body supply blood to the heart. When those arteries are blocked, and blood flow to the heart is reduced, it causes CAD.

We can help you with tips and tools, like making good food choices and following up with the doctor to keep CAD in check.

Managing diabetes is a team effort. Diabetes happens when the body’s blood sugar levels (the amount of sugar in the blood) are usually higher than normal. It means there’s a problem making enough of a hormone called insulin, or the body isn’t using insulin like it should.

We can work together to help lower the risk of complications (problems or issues) for a better quality of life.

Hypertension is also called high blood pressure. Blood pressure is the amount of force it takes for your heart to pump blood through the body. High blood pressure can lead to other health problems.

What Increases Your Risk

Everyone feels sad sometimes, but these feelings shouldn’t last very long. When a person has major depressive disorder (MDD or clinical depression), these feelings don’t go away easily. They can get in the way of everyday life.

Depression is common and a real illness. The important thing to know is that it can be treated. We’re here to help you find resources in your area or help you talk with your family or caregiver about MDD.
