Posted: 04/17/18 | SHARE:

Description:

We’ll start by answering your first question, what is a Health Home? Well ironically enough, it is not a home in the physical sense of the word. A Health Home pertains to service coordination efforts to help those in need obtain the services they require as Medicaid recipients. As a Care Manager you will work with consumers in order to map out their path to better health. Recipients of these services receive help from Care Managers in managing one or more chronic and/or mental health issues in the realm of working collaboratively with providers and promoting primary and preventative care in order to reduce or eliminate the need for a hospital visit. The Care Manager in this position must be fluent in both English and Spanish.   A comprehensive approach is applied to these services in that throughout concentrated communication channels amongst staff members and consumers, a common goal is achieved, and that is improved health and well-being.
