Disability Case Management Counsultant

Learn about the Disability Case Management Counsultant career

disability case management consultant

As of 2005, an estimated 41,129,000 people in the United States are living with a disability.  Many of these people require health-care services, both mental and physical, in order to lead healthy and happy lives.  Patient assessments, and arrangements for these services are crucial steps toward delivering appropriate and quality health. So important are these steps that the Disability Services industry created a position, Disability Case Manager, entirely devoted to assessing and arranging for the needs of people with disabilities.

Like the rest of the world, people with disabilities come from various socio-economic backgrounds.  As a result, people with disabilities need to determine the most cost-effective way to deliver the highest quality care suitable to their condition.  Without proper assessment, people with disabilities may face both financial and health-care problems hindering them from leading productive and satisfying lives.

In order to determine the services that best suit an individual, Disability Case Managers review medical histories, evaluate medical documents, and meet with clients.  A successful Disability Case Manager is able to navigate a complex network of health-care providers and understand the diverse needs of clients.  After the evaluation process, Disability Care Managers recommend to healthcare providers what services will best suite the needs of a particular client. 

With the assessment and recommendation complete, individuals are on their way toward receiving the best health-care option to suit their circumstance. Depending on the position, Disability Case Managers may continue to evaluate clients on an ongoing basis, or pass the case on to an auxiliary case manager.

Unfortunately, family members will occassionally try to determine the medical needs of a loved one, and implement a care plan.  Unfortunately, many family members are unable to accurately assess and deliver the medical requirements of their loved ones.  People with disabilities may also struggle to manage their own health and mental condition, and may come up short when providing self-care.  When this happens, people with disabilities may see their condition deteriorate, and face irreversible damage to their health.  Effective Disability Case Managers can prevent, and sometimes reverse, the results of unsatisfactory care.  Facilitating the short and long-term mental and physical improvements necessary for the well being of their clients.

Successful Disability Case Managers can be found working for private health-care insurance companies, hospitals, government agencies, private disability service organizations, and assisted living communities. Most Disability Care Managers are required to have a bachelor’s degree in nursing. Employers often seek out Registered Nurses due to their medical knowledge and experience with effectively assessing the needs of patients.

If you have an interest in providing quality health-care through the careful evaluation of patients' needs, you may enjoy a career as a Disability Case Manager.
