Who Pays for Case Management Services?
It depends on your situation. Commercial health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, or Tricare may pay for case management services delivered within some settings, such as hospitals, rehabilitation, or long-term care settings. In nonprofit or government agencies, case management services may be available on a sliding scale basis or even offered free of charge to eligible consumers. On the other hand, geriatric care management is generally not covered by public insurance or commercial health insurance. Some long-term care insurance policies may cover geriatric care management, and some nonprofits or public agencies may offer it on a sliding-scale basis; otherwise, it tends to be a private-pay service.
