Care Managers

A Health Home Care Manager assists in creating a person-centered Care Plan.  Care Managers assist in care coordination of your medical, mental health, substance abuse, and social services’ needs. Care Managers collaborate with your primary care physician and service providers to provide follow up and communication. Care Managers ensure all parties involved in your care are working together and sharing pertinent information to ensure you reach your desired outcome, based on goals and objectives identified in your Care Plan.
