At UnitedHealthcare, we’re simplifying the health care experience, creating healthier communities and removing barriers to quality care. The work you do here impacts the lives of millions of people for the better. Come build the health care system of tomorrow, making it more responsive, affordable and equitable. Ready to make a difference? Join us and start doing your life’s best work.(sm)

As a Case Manager, you’ll wear many hats, and work in a variety of environments. Sometimes, you’ll interact with members leaving the hospital – possibly with new medications or diagnoses. Or perhaps you’ll assist members with safe, effective transitions from care environments to where they live. You may also act as an intermediary between providers and members – serving in numerous roles, such as educator, evaluator, service coordinator, community resource researcher and more. The result? Fewer hospitalizations, ER visits and costly service gaps; and a less stressed, more effective health care system for us all. Want more flexibility, want more autonomy?

This position could include some community-based work that could require you to travel occasionally or more frequently in the future to member homes around your local area.

 

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Provide a complete continuum of quality care through close communication with members via on-phone interaction
  • Support members with condition education, medication reviews and connections to resources such as Home Health Aides or Meals on Wheels

  • Providing full Case Management services for disabled members approved for EPSDT PCS, PDN & PDHC including: (EPSDT PCS = Early Periodic Screening Diagnostic Treatment Personal Care Services/PDN = Private Duty Nursing/PDHC = Pediatric Day Health Care)
    • Assessing needs
    • Establishing a plan of care
    • Service coordination
    • Community resource utilization
    • Implementing the plan of care
    • Evaluating the plan of care for effectiveness
    • Serve as a resource to members and their families/caregivers
    • Serve as a resource for providers
  • Full management of prior authorization requests for EPSDT PCS, PDN & PDHC
  • Clinical Audits of weekly/monthly/quarterly reports for compliance and reporting responsibilities for specialty populations
  • Clinical Project Management
  • Any other duty assigned by the Manager, Director of Clinical Services, Medical Director, Compliance Officer

You’ll be rewarded and recognized for your performance in an environment that will challenge you and give you clear direction on what it takes to succeed in your role as well as provide development for other roles you may be interested in.
