Chronic Conditions/Disease Management Program 

Some people have an illness that can get worse if not watched closely by nurses and doctors. Your Nurse Care Coordinator is here to help. Call your CMS Area Office for more help. We have special, free programs for some illnesses. This is called Chronic Conditions/Disease Management. These programs help you manage your care. They help you stay well and not get worse. We have programs for diabetes, asthma, sickle cell anemia and ADHD/ADD. You can ask your PCP for more information or call your care coordinator.
