Medical Case Management
ACT employs ten medical case managers who are sited at health centers and community-based organizations throughout Hartford, Tolland and Middlesex counties. Medical case managers link HIV-positive individuals to appropriate medical care providers and offer ongoing assessments and evaluations of clients' physical, emotional and psychosocial needs. The goal of medical case management is to ensure optimal health outcomes for clients. Medical case managers are able to provide limited financial assistance with medical-related bills and basic living expenses. In addition, they can provide linkages to a variety of government and private assistance programs.
Project TLC provides short-term case management services to HIV+ inmates upon release from incarceration. Project TLC ensures that clients are not lost-to-care upon release by linking these clients to medical care, medication adherence support, entitlement programs and emergency housing.
The Housing Support program provides intensive case management and representative payee services for individuals who have a history of homelessness, evictions and/or housing instability. The goal of the program is to enable these high-risk clients to remain in safe, secure housing while ensuring that they remain compliant with medical care.
Medication adherence nurses provide individual education and counseling to clients who have a difficult time adhering to medication regimens.
