Care Coordination

Life is complicated when you’re managing an illness, a medical condition or a disability. It’s easier when you have an Accountable Care Organization or Managed Care Organization to provide the healthcare and support services you need. Unfortunately, even when you have a quality health plan, it’s often difficult to find the right care options for you and your family. When your health depends on timely access to quality care, you need an ally to help you navigate the system.

At Care Alliance of Western Massachusetts, our care coordination professionals help you understand and connect with your ACO or MCO services and benefits. We listen to your concerns and expectations and discuss your available options. We work with you to develop a unique individual plan that focuses on your current and future needs.

Person-Centered Care Coordination

We work with eligible ACO/MCO members from age 3 to 64 so we understand that healthcare isn’t one-size-fits-all. Our Care Coordinators know you have needs and concerns that are unique to you alone. That’s why you’re the focus of every service we provide on your behalf.

We get to know you and your circumstances because that’s the best way to assess your needs. During our care coordination process, we evaluate your informal support system and identify any gaps. We help you access covered supports, services, and benefits that are essential to your overall health.

We’ve helped many ACO and MCO members accomplish this goal by resolving existing issues. We’ve also taken steps to prevent future problems.

  • Helped members understand insurance coverage and health care plans
  • Assisted with MassHealth eligibility, name accuracy, and other issues
