Beyond insurance: Resources to support your employees’ health and wellness

As a member of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas, your employees have access to a wealth of resources to support their entire wellness journey. Whether they are looking for ways to kick start their journey, save money on their favorite fitness essentials, or find support from trusted medical professionals to navigate health concerns, we have resources to support their needs. Your employees may not be aware of these tools and programs, so we’ve compiled the essentials to make it easier to communicate about these valuable resources.

Support when you need it most

Did you know that Blue Cross has registered nurses available to help members through some of the toughest health challenges? Our amazing nurses are at the heart of our wellness, disease and case management programs.

“My nurse is very easy to talk to and she explains things in a way I understand; it’s nice to have someone like that,” said Kim Sachse, a participant in the disease management program.

The disease and wellness programs help members manage asthma, COPD, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cholesterol, stress, tobacco use, maternity care, and weight.

Our case management program is designed to assist members in evaluating their current health care needs. A case manager will work with a member and the member’s health care team to coordinate services to meet needs in a quality and cost-effective manner. Examples of situations where case management is beneficial include complex wound management, high risk pregnancy, specialty drugs and much more.

“Case managers really strive to show the member that Blue Cross is more than a health insurance company,” said Jennifer Powers, a case manager for Blue Cross. “They want them to know that we care. Because that’s what case management is all about.”
