Managing chronic disease and catastrophic illness
Case management services are designed to supplement the relationship you have with your primary care provider. When you are in a medical crisis -- dealing with a major chronic disease or experiencing a catastrophic illness -- that may require costly ongoing care, HMSA can help you with:
- Understanding your health care and coverage options.
- Finding care providers you need.
- Accessing additional community resources.
- Coordinating care, including palliative/comfort care services.
Specially trained care coordinators, social workers, and nurses use their clinical and/or benefits expertise to provide additional support and coordinate referrals as needed to help you make the best use of appropriate HMSA benefits and services.
If you qualify, case management is provided at no additional cost. For more information on care options, call 440-7057 on Oahu or 1 (855) 211-4527 toll-free.
