Case Management Care Coordination Is a short term intervention for members with potential risk due to barriers in services, poor transitional care, and/or co-morbid medical issues that require brief targeted care management interventions. Case Coordination Consultations are episodic case management interventions aimed at integrating medical and behavioral health care, and improving access to services. Members are typically identified by Medical Case Managers, PCPs or other community providers seeing behavioral health input and information regarding insurance based and community services. Consultations are generally opened and closed within 30 days. They may include member outreach contacts.
Service Delivery Passport is committed to a recovery and resiliency approach to behavioral health treatment. Providers must be sensitive to the unique cultural and diversity needs of Passport members and ensure access to services for members with special needs such as physical disabilities or language needs. Inpatient providers must ensure that members are discharged with an aftercare appointment within 7 days of discharge. Passport can assist with this process. Passport may review/audit treatment records as part of our quality program and/or to conduct outlier management activities. Providers are encouraged to report suspected fraud and abuse to Passport.
