UIHHSS does not have adequate staffing to provde this additional level of care, so Sinai Urban Health Initiative will provide intensified, individualized intervention to document asthma control and improve asthma management.

Sinai Urban Health Initiative is the vendor identified by BCBS that can provide this unique service to UIHHSS BCBS HMO patients. BlueCross Blue Shield provides 100% of the funding. There is no other entity authorized by BCBS to provide this service. If services are not performed by Sinai, these patients will not receive this additional level of care.
