Case Management

What is Case Management?

Case management is a personalized process that consists of planning, care coordination, patient advocacy and meeting patient needs wherever you are in your health journey. At LMH Health, our highly trained case managers provide periodic review of your plan of care.

Insurance and Benefits Assistance

To maximize your insurance benefits during and immediately following your hospitalization, your registered nurse case manager will communicate with your insurance company on your behalf. We make sure you are aware of your authorized services and that it works with your insurance plan's rules and regulations.

Advance Directives

Advance directives are documents that describe the kind of medical care you want to have if you cannot speak for yourself. An advance directive tells your family and your doctor what to do if you are badly hurt or have a serious illness that keeps you from saying what you want. There are three types of advance directives: a living will, a health care agent and a Do Not Resuscitate. A living will informs your family and doctor of the type of care you would like to receive if you are unable to do this for yourself. A health care agent, or medical durable power of attorney, is someone who you name to make all healthcare decisions on your behalf if you are unable to make them for yourself. A Do Not Resuscitate is a directive that if you are found in cardiac arrest, you do not want to receive chest compressions or be placed on a machine that breathes for you. We want to provide you with the most information and the appropriate care for your situation.
