Case Management

Case Management

Office Hours 8:00-4:30 Monday – Friday

Targeted Case Management is a voluntary, consumer directed approach which links Medicaid recipients to individual and specific services in the community. The case management process includes the facilitation of service coordination and linking and monitoring individuals diagnosed with intellectual disability, developmental disabilities, chronic mental illness, and brain injuries to appropriate and necessary services. Case management ensures necessary evaluations are completed, individualized service plans are developed, implemented and monitored, and reassessment of the individual’s needs and services occurs on an ongoing and regular basis. The program also advocates for the consumer’s rights and desires when the individual is incapable or asks for assistance. County Community Services Case Management is an accredited case management provider by the Iowa Department of Human Services.
