Your Care Plan:

When you join MetroPlusHealth Managed Long-Term Care, you will be assigned a Care Manager. Your Care Manager will work with you, your family, your primary care physician (PCP) or others that you choose to work on your behalf. Your Care Manager will develop an individual care plan for you.

Your Care Manager will develop a care plan that is specific to meeting your individual medical, physical, emotional, and social needs, based on the initial comprehensive assessment. Your written care plan covers the services you need, how often you need them and how long you will need them for. Your care plan is reviewed at least every six months, but can be reviewed more often if your condition and needs change. You will receive a copy of your care plan.
