Resources for you

Let Us Know Program

If you have a member who is an uncontrolled asthmatic, has trouble adhering to their asthma medication regimen, or had several trips to the emergency room for asthma control, please Let Us Know. Any barrier a patient/member may experience in their effort to gain control of their asthma symptoms (language barriers, lack of transportation to appointments, etc.) may be reported to us through the Let Us Know program, so that our Case Management department can lend a hand to both your office staff and the member.

Clinical resources

Search “asthma” in our clinical resources to view current professional standards that our Providers can use as a guide in the treatment of our members.
