Now on to the good stuff… what you’ll do:
The two major functions of the Post-Acute Care Case Manager (PACCM) are to ensure the customer is at the appropriate level of care, and to initiate and follow through in the discharge planning process. Given the complex nature and challenges of the US health system and CMS compliance requirements, it is necessary to provide case management interventions that are flexible, aligned with provider and facility plan of care, and follow the most effective work approaches.

Post-Acute Care Case Managers are expected to be able to perform at the top of their license . It is essential that clinically licensed personnel understand health plan benefits, demonstrate good clinical judgment, show initiative and critical thinking skills, and most importantly, follow up and follow through to ensure the best outcome for the customer.

In addition, each Post-Acute Care Case Manager takes an ownership approach in their individual role and responsibilities, and at the same time, understands the value of being a good team member. Cigna-HealthSpring Post-Acute Care Case Managers are one part of a clinical interdisciplinary care team that involves plan physicians and partners, Medical Directors, Community Case Managers, Acute Care Case Managers, Pre- certification nurses, Embedded Care Coordinators (P4Q), and specialists.

As with any Cigna-HealthSpring team member the Post-Acute Care Case Manager is a good steward of health plan resources, and consistently represents our company in a positive manner (i.e., follows dress code and demonstrates customer service principles).
