Case Management is a service that assesses your needs, develops a care plan, and coordinates that care to ensure you have access to the support and resources required to meet your unique needs. You will work collaboratively with your case manager to identify priority actions/services needed in your life and create a plan to address those issues first, while also looking toward longer-term goals. Your Case Manager will work with you to monitor your progress, reassess your needs and care plan regularly, and address new challenges as they arise. Case Managers are advocates for their patients, helping you to access and secure resources to eliminate barriers and improve your overall health and well-being.
**Case Management services are currently available in our Kentucky and Ohio locations.
