Health Home Care Management

Health Home Care Management services are provided by Care Coordination Organizations (CCOs) to assist people with developmental disabilities and their families in gaining access to services and supports appropriate to their needs. Health Home Care Management services are designed to:

  • Provide comprehensive, person-centered care planning using a network of care managers and providers (team approach)
  • Provide enhanced coordination and integration of primary and behavioral health services as well as access to medical and dental services
  • Identify community based resources and make connections to community services and supports, housing, social services, and family services
  • Use technology to link all services.

Care Management services are provided by qualified Care Managers who use a person-centered planning process in developing, implementing and maintaining a person’s Life Plan.
