5 Harmony in the Community: Quality All-Star Maritza Zeno Shares Her Story At Harmony, we know our members have unique needs. And we want to address them all. That s why we use a team approach to care. We involve members, their families and their primary care providers. We also work with community groups and government programs. Together, we deliver health care seamlessly. Here is an example from Quality All-Star Maritza Zeno. She s a social service specialist. Recently, she helped a family get financial support. This helped them manage a severe illness. A member s newborn son was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease. This condition causes inflammation in the arteries. It is usually treatable. But in this case, it had damaged arteries around the boy s heart. The mother had applied for special federal benefits twice. She had been denied both times. My job is to help members apply for this type of government benefit. I contacted the Social Security The member s mom was very appreciative. She sent me a thank-you with a picture of her son attached. Administration. I asked to get the case reopened. They told me what they told the mother. We would need to send an appeal for a hearing. I then asked to speak with the operations manager. I was able to get the case reopened. The case was approved. The member s mom was very appreciative. She sent me a thankyou with a picture of her son attached. Dealing with health care and social services can be challenging. We can help. Call Member Services. The number is on the back page.

7 Team Up to Keep Asthma Under Control Do you have asthma? You and your health care provider can team up to keep it under control. Here are some parts of a long-term asthma strategy: You should receive a written asthma action plan. You should get regular asthma checkups. Your checkup may include a test called spirometry. This measures how much air you can inhale and exhale. It also tests how fast you can push air out of your lungs. You ll get medication. Some will be for long-term control and some for quick relief. You ll find out about allergens or irritants you ll want to avoid. Remember that asthma can change over time. That means your action plan may have to change, too. Work with your provider on a regular basis. This is the key to success.
