Commonwealth Care Alliance’s (CCA) Care Partner Team is primarily responsible for providing longitudinal care coordination, care management, and/or care delivery to a dedicated panel of dually-eligible CCA members, a group of individuals with significant medical, behavioral, and social complexities that require intensive clinical support.

The Telephonic Care Partner is the primary clinical and care management provider for their panel of members. Responsibilities include: comprehensive care management, chronic disease management, preventative care and wellness, liaison with relevant other providers around behavioral health and long term service and support needs, and the provision (with support) of end of life/palliative care, as needed.
