Nurse Support for Episodic, Chronic and Complex Care 

Personal Health Consultant (PHC)

The PHC focuses on risks, not just conditions, and serves as the single point of contact for the member throughout the entire episode of care. The PHC provides care coordination and resources through inpatient events and condition management.

Case Management

If you're coming home after a hospital stay, surgery or even if you have a serious health condition, a Personal Health Consultant can help. There's no need to do anything; we'll call you. A nurse will call and go over your doctor's instructions about follow-up care and medicines and even give personal lifestyle coaching. Your consultant will answer any questions that you have and will even help coordinate the benefits for things like home therapy or medical supplies — so you can focus on getting better. Nurses are on-site in various Lexington and Louisville facilities.

Health Activity Coaching

Members with diabetes or asthma, a BMI of 30+, and who are working with a PHC can receive personalized coaching and support to meet weight and fitness goals.

Telephonic and onsite NICU nurse support is for families of premature infants or sick newborns — closely integrated with Anthem Future Moms. Nurses are on-site in various Lexington and Louisville facilities.

 Centers of Medical Excellence for Transplant Program

Transplants are a complex and highly specialized area of medical treatment. Anthem's Centers of Medical Excellence for Transplant (CME-T) program includes both CMEs and Blue Distinction Centers for transplant. Members have access to their transplant team and can speak with case managers who have expertise in this area.

Integrated Medical-Behavioral Health

Behavioral health specialists offer an integrated approach to medical and behavioral health care to ensure a holistic approach to member care and constant evaluation for mental health issues. The 24/7 Resource Center provides members with access to qualified staff and licensed clinicians day or night.

End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD): Administered by VillageHealth

If you have end-stage renal disease, your Personal Health Consultant can give you some extra support. A registered nurse consultant will work with you, your family and doctors to help with your day-to-day health care needs. If you have ESRD, a Personal Health Consultant will call to ask if you want to be in the program.
