All Medi-Cal newly enrolled SPD members and Cal MediConnect members will have a Health Risk Assessment performed within 45 days to identify the need for expedited services, eligibility in complex case management, risk factors and health information.
Chronic conditions addressed through our case management program include but are not limited to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, hypertension, HIV/AIDS, asthma and diabetes.
All case management cases including care plans and actions are housed in Essette’s care management platform which integrates with our core systems. This allows integrated internal and external access by approved staff.
