Disease Management

GEMS offers its members specific care and disease management programmes (DMPs) to help manage various chronic diseases and conditions. The programmes support members with chronic illnesses covered from the chronic medicine benefit, as well as other conditions such as HIV and chronic back and neck pain. 

Details on how to register on the programmes are included in the relevant sections of the member guide.

Members with chronic conditions may also be called by a qualified nurse to provide:

  • Healthcare education about conditions such as hypertension, asthma or mental wellness and share easy-to-read information on these conditions, if required;
  • Healthcare advice and support to help you better manage your health or chronic condition;
  • Guidance on how to comply with the treatment prescribed for your condition; and
  • An additional support pillar to the relationship with and care you receive from your doctor.
