What does a care manager do?

Care managers work with both adults and children. They share info about your health conditions and ways to take care of yourself. They can also help you: 

 

  • Find a primary care physician (PCP)
  • Schedule doctors’ visits
  • Find specialists and behavioral health services near your home
  • Get rides to your doctor, drug store or hospital
  • Get medical and dental services, supplies and equipment
  • Find community resources and educational materials
  • Plan your pregnancy
  • Manage chronic conditions

To help decide which services best meet your needs, the care manager works with: 

 

  • You 
  • Your provider 
  • Your representative or guardian (if applicable) 

During COVID-19, your care manager will work with you by phone. They’ll ask you about your health and care needs. You can have family and others present, if you wish them to take part.
