Case Management

Sometimes it can be hard to take care of your health. If you need help, please call us.

University of Maryland Health Partners offers Case Management to members who have had a critical medical event, been diagnosed with a chronic illness, and have multiple illnesses or complications.

✓ We will work with you and your doctors to help you get the services, resources and one-one coaching you may need to better take care of your health.

  • Find ways to help you manage your symptoms so you can feel better
  • Answer questions about your health and health care
