Are you or a loved one suffering from a chronic health condition? 

Our Managing Chronic Disease benefit provides you with coverage for personalized health coaching and disease management education to help you better understand your chronic condition and manage it. Services are provided by our specialized network of health professionals, and are available without a doctor's referral. It's healthcare on your terms to help you live better.*

Coverage is currently available for lung health education and support services (asthma, COPD), diabetes care and education, heart health (high blood pressure, high cholesterol) and coverage for services and supports to help you quit smoking and reduce your risk factors for some chronic diseases. 


Steps to Better Health

Learning you have a chronic disease can bring up many feelings - fear, confusion, and even depression. You may feel overwhelmed by how much there is to learn and what lifestyle changes you need to make. We're here to help make it easier.

Step 1

Connect with a health professional

The first step in managing your chronic disease is understanding your diagnosis. Accessing the right support will let you gain control of your disease. By working with a network of specialized health professionals, you can get answers to your questions and develop a personalized treatment plan - and there’s no referral required! In addition to in-person and telephonic coaching options give you the ability to access services from your home.

Step 2

Ongoing education and support

While there is no cure, it’s important to know that day-to-day quality of living can be significantly improved. Accessing the right support and motivation will allow you to gain control of your disease.

Step 3

Get reimbursed

Submit your claim just as you would for any other service Medavie Blue Cross covers—even through our Mobile App.

Step 4

Live better!

Take control of your health and spend more time doing what you love!
