Deaconess Nurse Ministry’s Chronic Care Management program is in partnership with several St. Louis healthcare providers. Faith Community Nurses administer non face-to-face service to Medicare recipients with two or more chronic conditions. Through this program, patients get the best care possible from everyone that is involved – physicians to clinical staff.

Faith Community Nurses can help coordinate visits with necessary doctors, facilities, lab, radiology, or other testing practices. Healthcare providers or our nurse are accessible 24-hours a day by phone to discuss symptoms, counsel on medications; and provide comprehensive care planning.

Office visits are included for Medicare beneficiaries as part of this program, but other in-person appointments are often not covered under Medicare benefits.
