Managing your health care alone can be hard, especially if you are dealing with many health problems at the same time. If you need extra support to get and stay healthy, we can help. You could have a care manager on your health care team for services that do not already include care management.
A care manager is a specially trained health care worker who helps you and all your health care providers to make sure you get the right care when and where you need it. The care manager knows what resources are available in your community and will work with local providers to get you the help you need.
If you have questions about care management, call 1-888-235-4673.
