    Care coordinator

    A care coordinator is a health professional trained to help you manage your care. They are often registered nurses. They may work for a doctor's office, hospital, or insurance company.

    If you have a chronic condition, such as diabetes, that puts you at risk for serious health problems, you may work with a care coordinator. This person will help:

    • Coordinate insurance coverage
    • Connect you with other health care providers and make sure each provider is aware of your care plans
    • Educate you about your condition
    • Make sure you get the treatments you need
    • Answer your questions
