Helping You Get the Care You Need

Managing your health care alone can be hard, especially if you are dealing with many health problems at the same time. AmeriHealth Caritas North Carolina understands members' needs. As a member, you may have a Care Manager on your health care team.

If you are assigned a Care Manager, your Care Manager can:

  • Set up your appointments and help arrange for transportation to and from your health care provider.
  • Help you in reaching your goals to better manage your ongoing health conditions.
  • Answer questions about what your medicines do and how to take them.
  • Follow up with your providers or specialists about your care.
  • Connect you to helpful resources in your community.
  • Help you continue to receive the care you need if you switch health plans or providers.
