Case Management

Case Management Program

The Case Management Program is a service offered to all health plan members which offers support when members are experiencing a critical event, high risk process, or have immediate complex medical conditions or needs. Nurse Case Managers work to identify and resolve care gaps in order to ensure that each member obtains needed services. This occurs at a one-on-one level with nurse support via phone and mail. Case Management frequently assists members with, but not limited to, the complex issues listed below:

  • Major or multiple organ system failure
  • Multiple trauma or acute events

  • Severe burns over 20% or greater of body surface
  • Complicated coordination of care or discharge planning (any disease/condition)
  • Cancer with critical event or treatment requiring extensive use of resources (excludes hospice)
  • Extensive use of healthcare and /or community resources
  • Transplants
