Case Management

Contracted Case Management

Hammer’s Case Managers support over 800 people who are on both Waiver and Non-Waiver programs through Hammer’s contract with Hennepin County. The waivers that we specialize in are CADI (Community Access for Disability Inclusion), DD (Developmental Disabilities), & BI (Brain Injury) waivers. We have recently expanded our program to allow us to support people who have yet to receive a waiver and participate in Hennepin County’s Non-Waiver Programs, Rule 185 & VADD.

On a daily basis, our Case Managers are going out into the community to the individuals’ homes, performing assessments, writing support plans, and making referrals to service providers to make sure that their clients have everything they need to continue living their lives independently in the community. Some of the services that our Case Managers set up for their clients include, Personal Care Attendants (PCA), Homemaking, Skilled Nursing Visits, Home Delivered Meals, Adult Day Care, Adult Foster Care, Housing Access Coordination, and Independent Living Skills training, etc. Hammer has been providing Case Management services since 2007.

Medica Care Coordination

Our Medica Care Coordinators work with over 300 individuals enrolled in Medica’s SNBC (Special Needs Basic Care) program, which is one of their Medical Assistance Managed Care options. Our Care Coordinators are focused on the health care needs of their members and work to ensure that these needs are met.

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Completing Health Risk Assessments with members on an annual basis
  • Ensuring that each member has access to the medications and medical equipment they require
  • Help identifying Primary Care Physicians within the member’s Medica network

Medica Care Coordinators assist their members in navigating, and understand their health care benefits that they receive.
