MANAGEMENT

What is Care Management? 

For children to thrive at home, the economic and social stability of their families is critical. Social work care management through our Enhanced Care Management and Infant and Family Care Management Programs offers children in the wider community access to bilingual social work case management to ensure families have the resources they need today and every day.

Enhanced Care Management 

ECM is a Medi-Cal benefit for individuals with complex needs. Coastal Kids Home Care ECM program supports children ages 0-21 with medical complexity or disabilities in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito County who would benefit from support in accessing healthcare, education, nutrition, economic, and other vital resources.

Who qualifies for ECM?

This may include limitations around language, transportation, nutrition, adequate housing, and other challenges which limit a caregiver’s ability to coordinate with primary and specialty care physicians, develop care goals for their child, and access community resources. Healthcare providers can refer via phone, fax or email.

Examples of care management support may include:

 

  • Reinforcing connections with primary care providers, and pediatric specialists and facilitating follow-through on appointments and recommendations.

  • Identifying socio-economic needs of the family and making closed-loop referrals to community providers.
