At MacGregor and MacGregor, we offer two types of case coordination services. Case Management (in catastrophic cases, where clients are eligible for this service under the auto insurance plan); and Internal Case Coordination Services by one member of the MacGregor treatment team (in non-catastrophic cases where a number of services need to be coordinated but funding is not available for a case manager).
Our case managers/ case coordinators incorporate a collaborative process of assessment, planning, evaluation, facilitation, and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual's comprehensive health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality health outcomes.
