The first thing to do is to make contact with the Optima Health program staff through
the Care Coordination telephone numbers, listed on the back of your member ID
card. Tell them that you have one of the eligible conditions, and would like to
participate in the program. They will assess your condition to determine how often
you need to have contact with your program Health Coach. You will need to have
contact with your Coach either by telephone or by email according to the schedule
explained to you by your Health Coach.
In addition to the contacts with your Health Coach, there are other requirements that
must be met to achieve the incentive. Your Health Coach will give you all of the
program details, however some of the requirements follow:
Respiratory Disease Management:
1. Physician follow up for asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
(COPD) at least once a year.
2. Development of an asthma/COPD management plan.
3. Development of an appropriate nutrition and activity plan.
