Your care options

 

Primary health care

primary care provider is someone you and your family can trust for all your health concerns. They see patients of all ages. Your provider knows and understands your health history and potential risk factors. As a result, this gives them a more complete picture of your health and how to best manage it. Our primary care providers can see you quickly for a same-day sick visit. In adition, they can give vaccinations, diagnose new illnesses, and manage chronic conditions. Also, they can promote preventive care and protect your overall wellness.

Care coordination

Care coordination is when someone helps you pull together the pieces of healthcare. This puzzle fits your unique needs.  The people who provide care coordination are called Community Health Workers.  They act as your personal guide in a number of ways. First, they help you find what you need in the healthcare system.  They match you to providers and make sure your needs and preferences are met. Second, they coach you to create and follow through on your health goals. Finally, they work to lower healthcare costs for people on Medicaid and Medicare.
