What is case management?
Case management is a process that allows us to help you manage your healthcare. How? By providing you with timely information and resources. Your case manager will make sure you get the services you need. They will also show you how to find and get other services.
Our case managers include experienced nurses and social workers who will help you with managing conditions and situations such as:
- • Pregnancy-related problems
- • Asthma
- • Diabetes
- • Transplants
- • Multiple hospital and emergency room visits
- • Getting needed services
- • Finding help in the community for needs that your health plan does not cover
Special Health Care Needs
If you have special healthcare needs — such as chronic conditions, serious ongoing illness, or a disability — your case manager can:
- • Help you get specialized care and services, including scheduling appointments
- • Develop a plan of care with you and your doctor
- • Answer your healthcare questions
Behavioral/Mental Health and Substance Abuse
Your complete wellbeing is important. Your case manager can help you get care if you:
- • Feel very sad, stressed, or worried
- • Can't deal with daily life
- • Aren't sleeping or eating well
- • Have thoughts about wanting to hurt yourself or others
- • Are troubled by strange thoughts (like hearing voices)
- • Are using drugs or drinking alcohol more
- • Have problems at work or at home
- • Have a child with problems at school
Our case management team may reach out to invite you to join these programs and services after looking at your health claims. You may also sign up or opt out at any time. You can email or call the number listed on your member ID card.
Farm Workers and Migrant Workers
Children of migrant workers have special health care needs. Our case managers will help members get the care they need right away. They will also help with scheduling doctor visits and getting checkups sooner if you are leaving the area.
