Sunshine Health educates member to take control of his health
Merle, a Sunshine Health member had a history of various health concerns. It had been quite some time since he visited his primary care physician (PCP), and as a result, prescriptions for most of his medications had expired. Merle’s case manager visited him at home and realized he desperately needed to see a PCP to ensure that his health conditions were treated before they became out of control. Now, Merle is managing his health and feels significantly better. With Sunshine Health’s education on diabetic meal planning and tobacco cessation services, Merle has taken important steps to improve his overall health by making dietary changes and quitting smoking.
