10a NCAC 27g .5901       SCOPE

(a)  Case management is a support service through which planning and coordination of services are carried out on behalf of the individual.  It is designed to integrate multiple services needed or being received by the individual from the area program or from other agencies.

(b)  Case management may include advocacy on behalf of the individual and monitoring the provision of services to the individual.  Within this context, case management assists an individual in meeting his total needs by linking the individual to evaluation, treatment, educational, vocational, residential, health, financial, social, and any other needed services.

(c)  The extent to which case management services are provided will vary according to the needs of the client.  The area program may elect to provide case management through a variety of models such as:

(1)           primary therapist;

(2)           contract with a private agency;

(3)           disability‑specific case managers; and

(4)           area operated case management units.
