Case and Disease Management
We want you to have the best quality of life you can have.
Magnolia has several programs to improve the health of our members. We know this means more than just helping you to see a doctor. It also means helping you find your way through the healthcare system so you get the treatments and the social services you need. It also means helping you understand and manage your health conditions. We do this through education and personal help from Magnolia staff. The goal of this service is to add to the quality of your care and help you to improve your health.
Disease and Case management are part of your health benefits and are provided to you at no cost. Magnolia pays for these services.
Magnolia works with Nurtur to give disease management services to our members. Nurtur Health Coaches know a lot about conditions like:
- High blood pressure
- Heart problems
They will talk to you about:
- How to take medicines
- What screening tests to get
- When to call the doctor
They will listen to your concerns and help you get the things you need. The goal of disease management is to help you understand and take control of your condition. Better control means better health.
This service is for members who have complex medical conditions. They often see several doctors. And may need help at home or treatment supplies. Conditions may include:
- Sickle Cell
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Kidney or Renal Disease
Our case managers are nurses that can help members understand their health problems. Our nurse works with the member and their doctors to help them get the care they need. The nurse can set up home health or other needed services.
