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 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 your insurance coverage
- Connect you with other health care providers
- Educate you about your condition
- Make sure you get the medicines you need
- Answer your questions
