Catastrophic/Traumatic Brain Injury/Spinal Cord Injuries
Medical case managers coordinate the medical care for their clients with the goal of expediting their recovery and reaching maximum medical improvement. PCM has an experienced group of Certified Case Managers with a vast range of expertise managing the following kinds of injuries: catastrophic, orthopedic, psychiatric, behavioral, neurological, and brain and spinal cord trauma. Many of PCM’s case managers hold special certifications. The case managers at PCM have experience coordinating care for children, adults, and seniors/elderly. Case managers assist in controlling the costs associated with medical care by keeping the insurance companies and employers routinely apprised both over the phone and in written status reports of the client’s needs in a medical update and by obtaining the needed medical opinions to document whether other health issues are unrelated to the underlying medical claim. Our medical case managers also coordinate the necessary arrangements for treatment, therapy, surgery, discharge planning, home care, durable medical equipment, attendant care and replacement services.
