Join us. Take this opportunity to start doing your life's best work. (sm)


As a Field Based Care Advocate, you’ll wear many hats, and work in a variety of environments. Sometimes, you’ll interact with members leaving the hospital - possibly with new medications or diagnoses. Or perhaps you’ll perform home visits, assisting members with safe, effective transitions from care environments to where they live. You may also act as an intermediary between providers and members - serving in numerous roles, such as educator, evaluator, service coordinator, community resource researcher and more. The result? Fewer hospitalizations, ER visits and costly service gaps; and a less stressed, more effective health care system for us all.

This is a field based position with a home based (telecommuting) office. You will work from home when not in the field. This is a Monday – Friday, daytime hours position.

This position will cover Stark and Summit counties

 

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Visit Medicaid members in their homes and/or other settings, including community centers, hospitals or providers’ offices
  • Provide a complete continuum of quality care through close communication with members via in-person or on-phone interaction
  • Support members with condition education, medication reviews and connections to resources such as Home Health Aides or Meals on Wheels
  • Assist members with the transition from a care facility back to their home
