Case Management. Diagnosis of a serious illness can be stressful and confusing.

Your dedicated nurse professional will work with you, your family and your treating physician to:

  • Coordinate your care
  • Inform you about your disease and treatment options
  • Provide information on Blues doctors and hospitals
