How Does Cal MediConnect Coordinate My Care?
Cal MediConnect helps you get the care you need. And getting care is easier.
To start, you’ll get a health risk assessment.
- After you join, your Cal MediConnect health plan will contact you.
- They will ask questions to learn about your health history and your current and future health care needs and other service needs. This is known as a health assessment.
- You can do the assessment in person, over the phone, or by mail. It is up to you!
Your health plan may give you a personal Care Coordinator.
A Care Coordinator is an experienced person who helps with your health care. A Care Coordinator can:
- Answer questions about the services you are getting or may need.
- Connect you to community services, such as Meals on Wheels.
- Help you find a doctor, get services or products like canes approved by your plan, and make appointments.
- Help you arrange transportation to see your doctor or pick up prescriptions.
- Help you solve any problems you may have with your health plan, doctor, or care coordination.
- Help you give your doctors the right information about your care and needs.
