What is a Health Home?
Health Homes provide Care Management services to help make sure everyone involved in an individual’s care is working well together and sharing information that is important in supporting a person’s recovery. A Health Home Care Manager is expected to help coordinate not just medical, mental health, substance abuse services, but the social service needs of the individual as well.
Who is Eligible?
- Medicaid recipients, including those who are already members of a managed care organization. Individuals who have both Medicaid and Medicare are also eligible.
- Those eligible need to meet one of the following conditions:
- Two or more chronic health conditions, such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, mental health condition or substance use disorder
- A significant mental illness
- Living with HIV/AIDs
How is it different from other Care Management?
Health Home Care Managers are trained to consider the needs of the whole person. Therefore, support is received in areas that may not have had assistance available before. Our Care Managers can provide linkage to housing, legal assistance and assist the person in becoming involved in social or community activities. The help received is driven by the goals of the consumer.
