Disease management programs are designed to improve the health of persons with chronic conditions and reduce associated costs from avoidable complications. These goals are accomplished by identifying and treating chronic conditions more quickly and more effectively, slowing the progression of those diseases. Disease management is a system of coordinated healthcare interventions tailored to your conditions where self-care efforts can be implemented. We have programs for our members who have asthma breathing trouble (such as bronchitis, emphysema), diabetes, heart problems, and many other conditions. Our health coach may contact you to invite you to participate in one of these programs when we see an insurance claim with one of these conditions. Disease management empowers you, working with your healthcare providers, to manage the disease and prevent complications.

Complex Case Management
SWHP has Case Managers available to help members who have been diagnosed with complicated health problems. A nurse case manager will work with members, families, and the physician to create a plan to meet the member’s ongoing complex care needs. Case managers advocate for members and assist them with setting goals and making a personal plan to improve their health. They also can assist with arrangements for necessary services and community supports. Case managers answer questions and provide education to help members have a better understanding of their condition and plan of care.
Members are enrolled in this program through referrals from their doctors and through SWHP monitoring of care patterns and claims to identify those who may benefit from case management. Members may also self-enroll by calling the customer service number on their insurance card. This program is included with your SWHP insurance benefits and participation is voluntary.

A lifetime of good health starts with quality medical care throughout your life. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), this care is now within the reach of all Americans. ACA requires health plans to eliminate cost sharing and cover preventive care services recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), guidelines specifically issued for women and adopted by Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, and the Bright Futures Guidelines of the Academy of Pediatrics.
The following recommendations are general guidelines for all ages and should not dictate the care you receive. Your doctor will let you know what tests and exams you may need based on your specific risk factors and overall health.
- Guidelines may change throughout the year based on new or revised laws and/or regulations, and additional guidance.
- Services must be billed with a primary diagnosis of preventive, screening, counseling, or wellness, if applicable, to qualify and other restrictions may apply.
- Your benefits plan may contain additional preventative care benefits, exclusions, and limitations. Check your plan documents for a complete description of benefits, exclusions, limitations, and condition of coverage.
- Grandfathered plans (a plan that hasn’t changed since 2010) may have costs. See your plan documents to find your specific coverage and costs.
- Talk to your health care provider about a proper schedule of check-up visits.
Preventive Care versus Diagnostic Care
Comprehensive evaluation to prevent health problems; you do not have symptoms or other abnormal studies suggesting abnormalities.
Medical care to treat or diagnose a problem, to monitor existing problems, or follow up on abnormal test results.
