Medicaid Monday: Celebrating Managed Care Nurses
May 3, 2021
Thursday kicks off Nurses Week, which runs from May 6 through 12 this year. While all nurses deserve to be celebrated, TAHP would like to highlight a special group of nurses in Medicaid managed care. Texans with complex medical needs in Medicaid have access to health plan nurses who provide one-on-one support and walk families through every step of the complicated and overwhelming health care system.
By coordinating care, these medical professionals give these patients the personalized, high-quality, effective care they need to thrive.
Texas Medicaid health plan nurses can become like extended members of the families they serve. Coordinating every aspect of care, these nurses give patients and caregivers more time to focus on their family and fully live their lives.
Going beyond the services of a doctor’s office, Medicaid health plan nurses provide much-needed care and support. They connect patients and families with the resources and support they need to get healthy and stay healthy.
