DISEASE MANAGEMENT AND PRESCRIPTION BENEFITS

Our Disease Management services provide you with an innovative, proactive method of managing and supporting members with chronic medical conditions. Disease Management extends to prescription plans. Patient education and support are the cornerstones of this program, with results being the focus. Disease Management in coordination with prescription benefit management is based on establishing protocols for physicians and educating patients not only on proper medication use but also on lifestyle changes to control their disease.

Disease Management is vital to member well-being and the reduction of medical costs, but quality of care is foremost. Chronic disease and its complications account for a majority of a groups' healthcare costs. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 71.8% of all deaths in the United States are due to five chronic diseases:

  • Asthma
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Depression
  • Diabetes

Those members with chronic illnesses will benefit from Disease Management, and your company will benefit from control of prescription costs. We work hand-in-hand with members, pharmacies and physicians to achieve the best possible outcomes.
