Care & Disease Management
Care Management Program
Health care can be complicated, especially for members who are trying to manage complex health needs. Humana – CareSource® has nurse Care Managers who help members coordinate appropriate medical and support services for conditions such as asthma, diabetes, congestive heart failure, obesity and high-risk pregnancy.
We also provide a comprehensive, integrated Care Management model for our highest-risk members. Using nurses and social workers, this multi-disciplinary approach integrates the Case Management Society of America Standards of Practice to help patients overcome health care access barriers. Typical high-risk members may have multiple medical issues, socioeconomic challenges and behavioral health care needs.
How to Refer Members to Care Management
Together, we can make it easier for members to manage their care. If you know of a member who may benefit from the Care Management program, please call us at 1-855-852-7005.
Disease Management Program
Members with chronic conditions, including asthma, diabetes and hypertension, are enrolled automatically in the enhanced Disease Management program. If they choose not to participate in the Disease Management program, they may opt out by calling 1-844-768-2010.
Members enrolled in the program receive free information to help them better manage their condition. Information sent to members includes care options to discuss with his/her provider.
Members identified as high risk will have a nurse assigned to their case to help educate, coordinate and provide resources and tools to help the member reach their health care goals.
