Disease Management

2013-Step-Up-logo

Better health is just one step away!

Not everyone can be perfectly healthy. But even with an ongoing health condition, such as asthma, diabetes, or heart failure, you can reach your own level of good health.

South Country Health Alliance’s Step Up! For Better Health disease management program focuses on YOU—not just your disease. Our program is designed to support you in making health decisions in order to live your life well. Here are some things you can learn:

  • Getting the treatment and preventative information you need
  • Identifying and managing your risks for other conditions
  • Understanding your medications and the importance to take them as directed
  • Making healthy lifestyle changes to reach your personal health goals
  • Understanding and following your treatment plan that your medical practitioner recommends

Step Up! For Better Health supports you with friendly telephone calls and educational mailings from our registered nurses. Based on your health care needs, we can give you individualized support to help you make healthy choices and live well. As a South Country member, you receive this supportive health program as part of your benefits. There is nothing extra to pay, and participating in the program is always up to you!

If you are interested in joining Step Up! For Better Health or have further questions, please call us toll-free at 1-866-722-7770 or TTY 1-800-627-3529 or 711, and talk to one of our disease management nurses. We can also send condition-specific materials to you via email.
