When to Consider a Nurse Case Manager

When you have more questions than answers, more problems than solutions, and no indication of when or if a claim will ever be closed, intervention by a nurse case manager should be considered.

We can deliver the most value when we're called in earlier in a case and have an opportunity to prevent it from ever getting to the point where you're wondering "What is going on?!!!" Early intervention is critical and a proven means for speeding recovery and saving costs.

Here are six top reasons to call a nurse case manager:

  • Possible medication abuse
