Are you caring for someone under 21 with chronic and serious mental health conditions, including functional impairment? Are you struggling to juggle all the different providers, physicians, and support providers?
If you qualify for Medicaid, we can help you get a single Care Manager. This single Care Manager can help you make appointments and coordinate health and community health agencies to keep your child healthy and safe as simply as possible.
- Comprehensive care management for physical, mental, and substance abuse problems
- Transitional care including follow-ups
- Patient and family support
- Referral to community and social support services
- Use of technology to link between services
What is the program like?
This program is similar to our Care Management program for adults. You go from juggling several providers to interacting mostly with one Care Manager, who understands your situation and helps you coordinate all other providers.
How do I participate?
