I'm considering a job as a case manager for a medicaid program. The job sounds similar to home health case manager but without the actual clinical stuff. I have a few reservations so I would love some input
First- is the focus to cut costs or is it trully patient focused. I say this because years ago I took a job as a case manager for workers comp and it was a terrible experience. I found they really didn't care about the patients or "clients" at all. I quit after 1 month.
Second- do you miss the clinical aspect? I've been doing home health for so long- I think I might miss the patient teaching/procedures. I sure would not miss on call, weekends, holidays and night-time paperwork.
I was thinking of trying for the job and doing per diem home visits- but I'm actually relocating to Raleigh, NC in a few months (the job is in Raleigh, NC)
