Medical Case Manager Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Medical Case Manager?

Medical Case Manager in Gloucester:
"Taking on all the problems people love to avoid!"
Pros: As a Medical Case Manager you have the opportunity to know your clients better than anyone else on the care team. You get to educate them and assist them with obtaining the resources and benefits that get or keep them healthy. It is truly rewarding when you are good enough at your job that they don't need you any more.
Cons: Clients come to you with all of their problems and sometimes there are just no resources to help. Homelessness is a tough issue to face as there is not always a resource to tap into and it is hard to get a job with no home.

Medical Case Manager in Knoxville:
"Work from home, help injured workers get the care they need."
Pros: Home office; medical research, helping people navigate a complex system.
Cons: We are in the middle of a person who has personal care needs and an insurance company who is trying to save money at all costs.
