The medical case managers at PCM assist in controlling the costs associated with medical care by keeping the insurance companies and employers routinely apprised both over the telephone and in written status reports of the client’s actual needs in a medical update and by obtaining the needed medical opinions to document whether other health care issues are unrelated to the underlying medical claim.
