[Issued 06-25-07]
(a) Case management is a set of interrelated activities under which responsibility for locating, coordinating and monitoring appropriate services for an individual rests with a specific person within the case management agency. Services under case management are not comparable in amount duration and scope.
(b) Case management is designed to assist a individual in gaining access to needed medical, social, educational and other services essential to meeting basic human needs, and is not restrictive in nature.
(c) Major components of the services include working with the individual in the use of basic community resources, referral, linkage and advocacy.
(d) In order to ensure that case management services are not duplicated by other staff, case management activities will be provided in accordance with a comprehensive individualized treatment/service plan. The development of this plan includes clinical staff participation, thus ensuring that staff knows a client has a case manager.
