Care Management – Service Details
CHCS Services utilizes advanced clinical tools and treatment protocols for ideal health status outcomes. These solutions support a high level of integration between clinicians and the risk management team. Our care management services help educate your members to make informed healthcare decisions and to balance ancillary services, which can result in a reduction of policy exposure.
The CHCS Services care coordinator completes an independent assessment in the client’s home or facility in order to expedite and verify benefit eligibility. The client’s health condition, ADL loss, and cognitive status are evaluated and a personalized plan of care is recommended. The nurse will identify available community resources and Medicare services if needed when developing the plan of action.
Care Plan Development
The CHCS Services plan of care process focuses on ensuring the delivery of appropriate care in the most cost effective manner. Information from the benefit eligibility assessment combined with additional information from physicians, providers and client support systems are incorporated in the care plan.
The CHCS Services plan of care summarizes the service recommendations (including informal support system when appropriate), the purpose of each service recommendation, available Medicare services, additional community resources, proposed frequency and duration of services, cost of services, payment sources and identification of all medical equipment necessary in the delivery of care.
