Asthma - Summary

Healthy Options asthma management, a BCBSKS program, emphasizes educating members about their health conditions and working with them to take a more active role in their health care. With the help of a registered nurse, enrolled members will receive education to promote:

  • Improved understanding of their asthma
  • Encouragement of healthy lifestyle options
  • Improved health care team relationships
  • Empowerment to make informed health decisions

With these changes, members will have a good foundation to start on the road to good health. A registered nurse will work with members by phone to provide information on various topics. Clinical information provided by the member is used to assess areas of educational needs as well as the member’s ongoing health status. In addition, members may receive periodic mailings about asthma-related topics. To see all components of the asthma management program, download a PDF version of the clinical guidelines here.

This free program is designed to help members, ages 21 to 63, who have BCBSKS as the primary insurer. Participation in the program is voluntary and the member may elect to withdraw at any time. Any information gathered during the course of the program will remain strictly confidential. Participation in Healthy Options will in no way affect the benefits of the member’s contract.
