Identifying Members for Case Management Services

Blue Cross of Idaho`s Medicare Advantage case management program provides continuity of care for patients with complex and serious medical conditions. These are conditions requiring resource-intensive medical and psychosocial care. Working to enhance the member`s quality of life while promoting the most cost-effective use of medical benefits, the program  educates members and providers on plan benefits, coordinates needed services and fosters member independence along with allowing treatment choices.

Members receive case management referrals in a number of ways:

  • Physician referrals
  • Health risk assessments
  • Prior authorization requests
  • Facets claim system information
  • Predictive modeling
  •  Monthly and or quarterly reports
  • Member and or family request
  • Matrix Health referrals
  • Eligibility as a True Blue HMO special needs plan member

A Blue Cross of Idaho case manager may contact a provider for information or consultation about a patient currently in the case management program. Providers may refer True Blue HMO or Secure Blue PPO members who they believe would benefit from case management (see MA PAP102). Prompt notification by providers of high-risk members will allow those members to receive optimal care within the scope of their benefits.
