At HealthCare Partners Nevada (HCPNV) we offer Disease Management programs for members with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and Diabetes. Improved self-management can improve the daily quality of life for members with a specific disease or condition. This is a free service offered to our members.
The Disease Management Program focuses on monitoring and improving adherence to treatment plans by emphasizing patient education, and actively monitoring those members most at risk for signs and symptoms of decline.

Frequently Asked Questions
What members are enrolled?
Members identified as potentially having CHF, COPD, and Diabetes through claims data, high risk assessments, and referrals from utilization management, case management, a PCP or even a specialist. They are contacted by phone for confirmation and screening by a qualified health professional. Members may also self-refer by contacting their provider, or designee, directly. Participation in the Program by members is voluntary and there is no additional cost to members.
What resources are available for the enrolled members?
Enrolled members are offered communication with a Registered Nurse or other health professional(s) to assist them with their conditions and how to appropriately manage their symptoms more effectively. They are given a better awareness and understanding of their condition by addressing lifestyle changes, current medication information, and even provide support to help prevent complications, exacerbation or the development of other health problems not associated with their chronic condition. All members receive educational materials about their disease.
