Case Management Program
Through BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina's (BCBSNC) Case Management program, individuals with complex health issues receive one-on-one support from case managers to better manage their health and avoid complications and extra expenses. Case managers are registered nurses with BCBSNC who work with you and your doctors to coordinate your care and connect you to the right resources. Case managers do not replace primary care physicians.
Associates, spouses and dependents covered under the BB&T Medical Program are eligible to participate in the Case Management program. The program does not cost you anything—it's a benefit of the BB&T Medical Program.
A case manager will reach out to you directly by phone or letter if you have one or more of the following health conditions: heart disease, diabetes, cancer, high-risk pregnancy, stroke, organ transplant, renal disease, rare diseases such as multiple sclerosis, or traumatic injuries (other health conditions may also qualify). You can also call Case Management at 800-218-5295 ext. 55547 (Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 7 pm ET and Friday, 8 am to 5 pm ET) and receive help regarding:
- Prescription medication questions
- Questions before or after surgery
- Learning about a new or recent diagnosis (for example, allergies, multiple sclerosis or cancer)—a case manager will send you written educational information on the diagnosis, treatment plan options and expected prognosis
- Developing a short-term plan of small, achievable steps to reach a long-term goal (for example, managing high blood pressure)
- Finding a primary care provider, specialist or nutritionist
- Understanding your benefits
Case Management services are voluntary. If you choose to use Case Management, you will be assigned a personal case manager who will communicate with you by phone as often as you need and at times that work best with your schedule. You can receive support until your condition improves or until you are comfortable managing your condition on your own.
Case Management Incentive Program
BB&T offers eligible participants a $250 cash incentive if they participate in Case Management and another $250 if they complete their Case Management care plans. Participation means developing a care plan with the Case Manager and participating in at least one coaching session. Completion means completing all of the goals in the care plan.
If you or one of your dependents participates, any incentive earned will be included in the associate's BB&T payroll within one to three payroll cycles following participation/completion.
The incentive program is available to associates as well as covered spouses and children who are selected for Case Management services by BCBSNC. COBRA members are not eligible to participate.
