Living365® ‘Managing Your Asthma/COPD’ Health Education Classes Available for Select BCBSIL Medicare and Medicaid Members

Posted June 20, 2019

To support our members with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), we’ve partnered with Albertson’s to offer LIVE Asthma/COPD management classes in July 2019. Through our Living365 program, these educational classes are being offered at Jewel-Osco at no additional cost for our members with a Medicare Advantage or Medicaid plans.

These classes will give members the chance to:

  • Learn more about the causes, symptoms and management of asthma and COPD from a Jewel-Osco pharmacist.
  • Better understand how to take inhaled medications. Using demonstration inhalers, the pharmacist will show the best techniques and common mistakes.
  • Take part in a question and answer session.
  • Receive free education materials – including an asthma/COPD booklet and water bottle.

Available dates and locations for these 60- to 90-minute classes are:

At BCBSIL, we believe that healthy actions add up. Please encourage your patients to attend the Managing Your Asthma/COPD class, offered exclusively as part of our Living365 program. If you have other questions or concerns, please call the phone number on your patient’s ID card.

Our Living365® program offers disease coaching classes, online resources and printed materials to guide our members to better manage their chronic conditions. The goal of Living365 is to help members live in good health.
