Health care has changed in many ways. At one time, most of one's health care was delivered in a visit to the doctor's office or in a hospital. With the expansion of managed care, people now receive care in many different places depending on what they need and what their insurance covers. The Department of Care Coordination has prepared this site to help you and your family better understand the different places where you can receive care. These are generally referred to as levels of care in your health insurance policy.
It is generally best for all patients to have a primary care physician who knows you and can help guide the decision making about the level of care you need. Please ask us questions.
