Though our Guardian Angel Program, we can use claims data to identify those who’ve recently survived an overdose. Then reach out with the right support.


A caring nurse or clinician will:

  • Give information on naloxone and other strategies to reduce harm
  • Direct students to in-network resources and providers
  • Work with case management to offer ongoing support and follow up, as needed
