Coordination of Care Initial Assessment
Our Care Coordinator visits each client at their place of residence to evaluate condition, discuss options, and develop a Plan of Care.
We help identify any programs, community resources, or benefits that might be available for our clients such as: Medicare/Medicaid Services, Private Health Insurance, Long Term Care Insurance, VA pensions, and others. We will work with your long term care insurance provider to accept Assignment of Benefits and will work to invoice providers directly, if permitted by the carrier. We take the worry and the paperwork hassle away and try to make it as easy as possible for you to access any long term care benefits.
Development and Ongoing Plan of Care
We incorporate all the orders and recommendations from your physicians, case managers, healthcare providers, and our own initial assessment in order to develop an effective Plan of Care. This plan will describe all the services required, the proposed frequency, cost of each service, potential equipment and supplies needed, and the possible payment sources.
- This process could start before the client is discharged from the hospital, rehab, or other healthcare facility.
- We will work with the attending physician, discharge planner, family, and the client to determine the proper Plan of Care and agree on the specific goals to maximize the healing process.
