Please be advised that in the coming weeks your Care Coordinator will be reaching out to you more frequently than normal to monitor how you’re doing during this crisis, to be sure that all is well, and to connect you to any services that might be necessary.
What if I need to see my Care Coordinator in person?
If you were scheduled to meet in person with a Care Coordinator within the next several weeks, that meeting will likely be handled via computer technology or telephone. The details of how that meeting will be set up will come from your Care Coordinator. Learn more about how we determine cases where in-person support is necessary here.

We will help provide you with a replacement or interim Care Coordinator and make sure you continue to receive the support you need.
