Your PCC Case Manager's Role
Your case manager will lay the ground work for your discharge when you are admitted to the hospital. He or she will interview you as well as your physician and key family members to accurately identify your needs and evaluate your options for post hospital care.
Through this process, your case manager identifies any additional treatment or care you may need after being discharged, and makes the necessary arrangements. This includes coordination with your physician and your insurance company. Various forms of post-hospital care may include home health, home medical equipment, acute rehabilitation, skilled nursing care, custodial care, board and care, home health care and hospice.
