Multi-Level Care Management
Your Lakeland care team manages your medical and social services needs. Care management recognizes there are medical as well as non-medical needs that have to be addressed in order to maximize your health.
Collaborative Care, for You!
If you are a Lakeland Care beneficiary, when you add Lakeland Care +Health, you’ll receive the support of a care coordinator to manage your health care. If you choose, your LC +H Care Coordinator can work with your existing Lakeland Care team to coordinate your health care services with the long-term care services you currently use as a Lakeland Care member.
Your care coordinator can help you choose a health care support group, a specific community center, or address your housing needs. Your care coordinator can also offer information and referrals to programs designed to help you get the most out of your health care coverage, such as exercise or smoking cessation programs.
Nurse Case Managers
Nurse case managers work with our staff when dealing with complex medical, behavioral or social needs. The care coordinator or care manager will continue to work with you while the nurse case manager is helping out.
Intervention and Outreach
If you are struggling with mental health issues or substance abuse, we may provide support for behavioral change and assistance locating community resources. Our health outreach works with members with special needs and assists them in accessing preventive services.
The Lakeland Care + Health plan offers you a wide choice of providers to choose from. Lakeland Care +Health provides medical services through Medicare-certified doctors, health care professionals, hospitals and other health care facilities. You must use plan providers except in emergency or urgent care situations. If you obtain routine care from out-of-network providers, neither Medicare nor the Lakeland Care +Health Plan will be responsible for the costs. Visit your Evidence of Coverage for more information.
