Sunshine Health has several programs to improve the health of our members with chronic conditions. We know this means more than just helping you to see a doctor. It means helping you understand and manage your health conditions. We do this through our disease management programs. Members are provided education and personal help from Sunshine Health staff. The goal of this service is to add to the quality of your care and help you to improve your health.
If you have one of the conditions below, call Member Services or your care manager for information:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Heart Failure
- Substance Abuse Disorder
All of our programs are geared toward helping you understand and actively manage your health. We are here to help you with things like:
- How to take medicines
- What screening tests to get
- When to call your doctor
- When to go to the Emergency Room
We will help you get the things you need. We will provide tools to help you learn and take control of your condition. For more information, call your care manager.
If you are in the LTC program, we also offer programs for Dementia and Alzheimer’s issues. Sunshine Health’s Alzheimer’s & Dementia program focuses on LTC members diagnosed with these conditions. We will work with you to create a person-centered care plan that includes goals and interventions to address your needs.
This program is based on personal care planning and a cohesive team approach. It provides education and resources to promote member choice and improve your understanding of services and supports available to you.
