Medical Case Management
The goal for Medical Case Management is to identify areas of patient need and through a system of referrals, link patients to the resources or services required. Our experienced Medical Case Managers provide access for our patients to essential medical care, medication and support services (such as mental health, substance abuse treatment, housing, transportation, and legal services). Eligibility requirements may apply and waiting lists are possible.
During the assessment, the Medical Case Manager will work with the patient to develop an individualized service care plan and track the patient’s progress toward meeting established goals.
Self Managed Patient
Patients can be assessed as self managed by their Medical Case Managers. These patients do not have critical needs and can address issues themselves with minimal help. If a Self Managed patient has a concern they can contact the resource line.
