In the last 3 years, Jeff Kline hasn’t missed a day of work. With a special needs child at home — and mounting daycare and medical bills — he can’t afford to.
Jeff also has asthma and diabetes. Two chronic conditions that can sideline him if they aren’t properly managed.
Thankfully, Jeff’s employer offers a health plan that has programs especially for patients with ongoing, chronic illnesses. So Jeff is connected to a team of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and health plan staff that helps him properly manage his conditions.
In fact, a nurse care manager calls him weekly to ensure he’s checking his blood sugar and taking his medications on time.
The extra outreach and support help Jeff avoid hospital stays and the ER. And they can save Jeff and his employer from paying for unnecessary care.
Jeff’s employer can rest easy knowing its health plan and network doctors are working together to keep Jeff healthy and able to come to work.
What’s so special about Jeff’s health plan?
