Case management

People with certain health conditions or special needs may need help coordinating health care services. Your primary care provider (PCP) will help you with your health care needs. You will also learn steps you can take to care for yourself. Amerigroup has case managers who can work with you over the phone or in person to offer support. If you need case management services, we will refer you to a case manager. Your case manager will work with you and your PCP to set up a plan of care for your condition. Case management services are for:

  • Children with special health care needs
  • Pregnant and postpartum women
  • People with HIV/AIDS
  • Those who are homeless
  • People with physical or developmental disabilities
  • Children in state-supervised care

To learn more about case management, call Member Services at 1-800-600-4441 (TTY 711).
