Health Homes Care Team

HHP services are provided through a care team also known as a Community-Based Care Management Entity (CB-CME). The care team/CB-CME is the frontline provider of the HHP required services. They will conduct outreach to SCFHP members who are eligible for HHP, as well as deliver HHP services. The care team includes a care coordinator who will work with the member and their health care providers, such their doctors, specialists, pharmacists, case managers, and others. They will make sure everyone is informed about the member's health and the services they need. The care team will work with the member to manage and coordinate their care and connect them to community and social services.

The HHP Care Team consists of:

  • Care coordinator
  • HHP director
  • Clinical consultant
  • Housing navigator
