Case Management

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska’s case managers are registered nurses able to assist you with cancer treatment, transplants, children with special needs, traumatic injuries and many other complex conditions. Our case managers do not replace the care you receive directly from your health care providers; they serve as your personal advocate in making informed decisions about your health care.

Case managers will:

  • Provide information to help you understand their health care benefits
  • Identify and refer services and resources to meet your needs
  • Coordinate care plans with you, health care providers and any other relevant caregivers (including family members)
  • Encourage involvement in your treatment program and empower you to manage your condition
  • Consistently communicate with you to assure your needs are being met
