Taking Advantage of a Health Insurance Georgia Plan Care Manager

Some health insurance Georgia plans include access to a care manager. This is a person who may be able to help you understand your plan, or medical condition, better. Sometimes care managers are nurses, and therefore knowledgeable and qualified to provide you information about a disease or treatment. Let's suppose that you have recently visited your physician who diagnosed you with something you are not familiar with. You may not understand the treatment plan suggested to you, and now you may be feeling worried and confused. A care manager may be able to explain some of the medical words that your doctor used, and can help coordinate your care better. Perhaps you received a prescription that is confusing. These are all situations in which your health insurance Georgia care manager may be able to help.

Not all health insurance Georgia plans have care managers available to you, but many of them do. Or they may have a similar program, with a different name other than care manager. Coventry Health Care has care managers. United HealthCare has a 24-hour Nurse Line available to members. Other health insurance Georgia companies have their own programs that will still provide members with a similar resource.

These health insurance Georgia plan care managers can help you understand your medical condition, your treatment plan, and your medications. All of this information will help you make better more informed decisions about your health treatment. Also, a health insurance Georgia care manager will provide you with support and help you comply with your physician's treatment plan. If necessary, a health insurance Georgia care manager can also communicate with your physician in order to resolve questions.

If you need more medical support, you may be able to request a care manager who is also a registered nurse. That may help you more, and the nurse can provide a personalized care plan to meet your individual needs. Then you will have one nurse, and one person to contact and ask questions of, and that will reduce the confusion, and improve the coordination of your medical care. Again, be sure to check with your health insurance Georgia plan to see whether nurses or care managers are available for your use as a member.

Yet another situation in which a health insurance Georgia care manager can help, is if you need home care, or medical equipment. The health insurance Georgia care manager can check on your particular benefits to see what is covered. They also may be able to explain what you need in layman's terms so that you will understand exactly what you need to find.
