AvMed has several programs designed specifically to help Members living with complex medical conditions.
AvMed’s Case Managers are registered nurses or social workers with extensive clinical experience in many specialties. They collaborate with members and physicians to personalize a patient's suggested treatment plan, and help coordinate the different types of care that most complex cases require. These programs are confidential and are available through your AvMed plan.
Medical Directors support the Case Managers, helping to ensure the use of clinical protocols are proven by medical science. This, in turn, helps bring the best clinical outcomes. AvMed designed this service for members who have experienced a critical event or diagnosis that requires extensive use of resources.
