Non-Medicaid Program

For those who do not receive Medicaid, Care Management at Circare is available through our Non-Medicaid Care Management program. Circare Care Managers work with individuals to develop and maintain a person-centered comprehensive plan for accessing and using community services and supports necessary to promote well-being. These services and supports are provided through a network of organizations, with the care manager overseeing the process. The network includes not only healthcare providers but other social and community supports that are essential to a person’s overall health, such as housing and vocational services. The goal is to ensure access to appropriate services, improve health outcomes, reduce preventable hospitalizations and emergency room visits, promote the use of Health Information Technology (HIT), and avoid unnecessary care.

Services Include

  • Comprehensive care management
  • Care coordination and health promotion
  • Comprehensive transitional care from inpatient to other settings, including appropriate follow-up
  • Individual and family support, which includes authorized representatives
  • Referral(s) to community and social support services, if relevant
  • The use of Health Information Technology (HIT) to link services, as feasible and appropriate
