Targeted Case Management (TCM) is a service that assists individuals in gaining access to necessary care such as, medical, behavioral, social, and other services appropriate to their needs. TCM is individualized, person-centered, empowering, comprehensive, strengths-based, and outcome-focused. TCM ensures the client's freedom of choice and promoting the well-being of the individual.
TCM connects individuals with mental health and behavioral concerns to the community services they need. Each individual who is referred and authorized to receive services is assigned a Case Manager to monitor and coordinate their care. Succeeding a comprehensive assessment, the Case Manager and the individual or guardian will work together to develop a treatment plan that identifies and prioritizes the individuals service needs. The Case Manager will then link the individual to the appropriate service providers and monitor the individual’s services and compliance.
TCM is offered to Medicaid recipients and takes place in the community and where the consumer resides. A Case Manager responds to consumer’s requests and needs.
Our TCM services provide assistance to children, adolescents, and adults with mental illness and behavior concerns, in accessing resources and supports in their home and their community.
A successful outcome is attained at AB Ayudando Familias, LLC when the individual obtains services and supports needed to live autonomously in the community and no longer needs case management services.
