Carolina Case Management has spent almost 20 years building relationships with its clients and staff as well as expanding its portfolio. Our capabilities are among the most varied and skilled in the industry. In addition to standard medical case management, CCM proudly offers many unique and customized services to meet the needs of a broad range of situations:
Long & Short Term Disability
Intervening as early as possible, the case manager contacts the disabled worker, the healthcare provider and the employer to define the disabling condition, coordinate medical care and assist the employee in the recovery and return to work or re-employment process. Medical and vocational case management skills are utilized to facilitate appropriate care and evaluate return to work activities.
Medicare Set-Aside Allocation(MSA)
A Medicare Set-Aside Allocation is an agreement that takes place at claim settlement for “qualified” individuals. It prevents the shifting burden for future injury-related medical expenses from the insurance carrier, or responsible party, to Medicare. CCM has certified professionals that can assist you with this complex and challenging issue.

Life Care Planning (LCP)
Life Care Planning includes the methodology utilized to project the future care needs of a disabled person and the costs associated with both the medical and non-medical needs over the projected term of disability.
