Doctors, nurses and other providers will coordinate care for chronically ill patients through the program, the release said. "We know that members who are diagnosed with a chronic condition often face complex treatments and medical regimens and are many times faced with figuring out how to navigate a very complex medical system on their own," Pam Kehaly, president of Anthem Blue Cross, said in the release.
