Care & Disease Management
CareSource® offers care and disease management that can provide a broad spectrum of educational and follow-up services for your patients.
Care Management Program
CareSource’s Care Management program is a fully integrated health management program that strives for member understanding of and satisfaction with their medical care. This one-on-one personal interaction with outreach specialists and nurse care coordinators provides a comprehensive safety net to support your CareSource patient through initial and ongoing assessment activities, coordination of care, education to promote self-management and healthy lifestyle decisions. In addition, we help connect your patient with additional community resources.
We offer individualized education and support for many conditions and needs, including:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure and cholesterol
- Low back pain
- Weight loss
CareSource encourages you to take an active role in your patients’ Care Management programs and participate in the development of individualized care plans to help meet their needs. Together, we can make a difference.
You can now access care plans online through the Provider Portal to easily provide input into your patients’ care plans and consult with care managers.

Disease Management Program
Members with chronic conditions, including asthma and diabetes, will be automatically enrolled into the enhanced Disease Management program. If they choose not to participate in the Disease Management program, they may opt out by calling 1-855-202-0415.
Members enrolled in the program will receive free information to help them better manage their asthma or diabetes. Information sent to members will include care options for them to discuss with their 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.
