Manage your condition
Condition Care is all about you

What programs do we offer?
We offer healthcare and support services for members with any of these conditions:
Asthma is a long-term condition that makes it hard to get air into the lungs. Asthma may cause wheezing, tightness in the chest, shortness of breath and coughing.
We can give you an asthma action plan for you and your healthcare provider to complete. This will help monitor your condition, stay away from your triggers, and manage your medication (meds).

Bipolar disorder is a brain disorder that can cause unusual changes in mood, energy, activity level, and make it hard to carry out day-to-day tasks.
It can feel uneasy to learn you’re living with bipolar disorder, so we’re here to help. With proper treatment and support, you can enjoy a healthy, happy, and productive life.
COPD is a condition in which damage to the lungs has caused the airways to change shape and feel partly blocked. This makes it hard to breathe.
We can help you learn to breathe easier to possibly improve your quality of life. We’ll help you learn how to use inhalers, spacers, nebulizers and other devices, along with other skills for living with COPD.
Taking care of your heart is one of the best things you can do for your health. The heart pumps blood to the whole body. Having CHF means the heart can’t pump as hard as it should.
We can help you understand CHF better. That way, you and your healthcare provider(s) can work together to help you feel your best.
Your heart is only the size of a fist, but it’s one of the most important muscles in your body. Arteries throughout the body supply blood to your heart. When those arteries are blocked, and blood flow to the heart is reduced, it causes CAD.
We can help you with tips and tools, like making good food choices and following up with your doctor, to keep your CAD in check.
If you’re living with diabetes, you’re not alone. Diabetes happens when your body’s blood sugar (the amount of sugar in the blood) levels are usually higher than normal. It means there’s a problem making enough of a hormone called insulin, or your body isn’t using insulin like it should.
We can help you lower your risk of complications (problems or issues) and make your quality of life better.
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks the immune system (the body’s natural defense against illness). It makes it hard for the body to fight infection and disease. If HIV isn’t treated, it can lead to AIDS. AIDS stands for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. It is the last stage of the HIV virus.
We’re here to help you with simple steps for living with HIV/AIDS. Taking your medications the right way, eating healthy, staying active, and following your treatment plan can make a difference.
Hypertension is also called high blood pressure. Blood pressure is the amount of force it takes for your heart to pump blood through your body. When your blood pressure is high, it can lead to other health problems.
We can help you make short- and long-term goals that will help you manage your blood pressure.
Everyone feels blue or sad some of the time, but these feelings don’t last very long. When a person has depression, these feelings don’t go away easily. They can get in the way of your everyday life.
Depression is common and a real illness. The important thing to know is that it can be treated. We’re here to help you find resources in your area or help you talk with your doctor.
Kids and teens can also have depression.
We can help kids and teens talk with their families and healthcare providers about depression, get treatment, and live a healthier life.
Schizophrenia is a behavioral health disorder that affects a person’s thoughts, feelings, emotions, decisions, and actions. Some even have a hard time with focusing and memory loss. It can get in the way of daily life.
We’re here to help you learn how to manage schizophrenia with medication, treatment, and support.
Substance use disorder is a disease that leads to the use of drugs, alcohol, or other substances in a way that causes problems for your health or in your life.
We can help those with substance use disorder work together with their healthcare provider(s) to talk about treatment options (choices of ways to get better) and finding local community programs and resources.
