Care and disease management

Our care managers are here for you. They understand health conditions and can help children and youth get the care they need. Their health needs determine the level of care management.

Managing chronic conditions?

Some health issues need more care. If a child has chronic conditions, a care manager can help you get the treatment they need to feel better. 

Care managers can help manage conditions like:

  • Asthma 
  • Cancer 
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Diabetes
  • Hemophilia
  • HIV
  • Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS)
