How to obtain a named Service Coordinator (for Level 3 acuity Members)?

Service Coordinators are case managers who advocate and work with your healthcare team. Your assigned service coordinator ensures you receive timely, high quality, cost effective care and support during both acute and chronic phases of your health. Service coordinators safeguard your health through the creation of an individualized service plan, which includes a holistic evaluation of your physical, behavioral, and social needs.
