Complex Case Management Program

Blue Shield of California Promise Health Plan has established a Complex Case Management program to provide a direct interface with our members and to work closely with their physicians to coordinate care and services for high-risk members. The goal of complex case management is to help members regain optimum health or improved functional capability, educate members regarding their chronic condition, and reinforce the primary care physician (PCP) prescribed treatment plan.

Blue Shield Promise utilizes two distinct processes to identify members for enrollment in complex case management, which include both administrative and electronic data as well as referral sources. The Plan reviews administrative data reports on at least a monthly basis, and referrals are done at the same time.

Electronic identification sources include but are not limited to the following:

  • Claims data
  • Encounter data
  • Hospital discharge data
  • Pharmacy data
  • Laboratory data
  • Medication Therapy Management Program

Referral identification sources include but are not limited to the following:

  • Provider referrals
  • Disease Management Program referrals
  • Discharge planner (inpatient case manager)
  • Member self-referral
  • Member services referral


Referral process

Any Blue Shield Promise credentialed primary care physician or specialist may refer a member to complex case management.

Each referral will be reviewed for complex case management enrollment based on available information and a member assessment by phone. Participation in this program is free and voluntary for all eligible Blue Shield of California Promise Health Plan members. You can refer a member to this program by filling out the referral form and sending it to us:
