Title: RN Case Manager: Special Needs Plan
Location: United States – Remote – Full-Time
A bit more about this role:
We want to help members navigate the healthcare system in a better and safer way, and case management is critical to achieving this for our most vulnerable and complex members. You’ll be responsible for providing telephonic, ongoing case management support to our highest risk members, and you’ll be helping to build the program while doing so. You’ll focus initially on the members enrolled in our Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP). These members, eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare, represent some of the highest risk members who would most benefit from case management. You’ll serve as an advocate for these members, coordinating care and ensuring they have the necessary resources and support to achieve better health outcomes.
Our ideal case manager is caring, compassionate, solution-oriented, and enthusiastic about providing an outstanding experience for Devoted Health’s members. They are committed to integrity, excellence, and empowering our most complex members to confidently navigate the healthcare system and live healthier lives.
