Disease Management

Gold Coast Health Plan (GCHP) cares about you and your family! That’s why the Plan offers Disease Management Programs for Asthma, Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes. The programs are for members and their families with asthma, diabetes and pre-diabetes. The programs are a free GCHP benefit. They offer resources and educational materials in both English and Spanish.

The Disease Management Program for asthma or diabetes can connect you with a nurse coach to:

  • Answer your specific questions.
  • Help you create a plan of action for you and your family.

GCHP can connect you with English and Spanish classes in Ventura County near your home or work. The classes can help you learn ways to stay healthy and be active. Classes include information about managing many chronic conditions.

The classes can also teach you ways to keep your family healthier and more active.

For members with asthma, your doctor can create or change an Asthma Action Plan (AAP) for you. An AAP can help you keep your asthma controlled. If you do not have an AAP, click the link below for a sample to show your doctor. Your doctor may use this sample or your doctor may have a preferred AAP. Bring the sample below to your next doctor visit if you need a plan.

  • Sample asthma action plans in English and Spanish from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).

Partnering with GCHP is easy. All you need to do is call 1-805-437-5588/TTY 1-888-310-7347 and tell us how we can help you and the best way to reach you. You can stop the program at any time.
