WE’RE HERE TO HELP YOU IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH

The Care Guidance Program for Montefiore Associates provides you with a Personal Health Nurse (PHN) who will work one-on-one with you for as long and as often as you need. This is a voluntary program that can provide support and resources to help you, or a member of your family, manage your or their health. Montefiore provides this program at no cost to Montefiore associates and their family members who are covered by Montefiore’s Empire BlueCross BlueShield medical plans*. All services are completely confidential and at any point in time, the associate or covered dependent has the opportunity to OPT OUT of the program.

Working as a team, your physician and your PHN will set health goals, create an action plan and identify ways to help you maintain healthy habits. Your PHN’s goal will provide care management and care coordination telephonically to efficiently guide you through the different aspects of the healthcare system, making your care manageable and more successful.
