There is nothing more important than your health and wellness as well as that of your family. But it can be difficult to navigate complicated medical conditions or wellness goals on your own.
That’s why Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas offers support from our team of nurses at no additional cost.
Nurses in the disease and wellness management program talk with members over the phone and help members reach their goals to become healthier.
“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:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure and cholesterol
- Tobacco use
- Maternity care
- Weight loss

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.”
