Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
NaviCare HMO is a health-care program sponsored by Fallon Community Health Plan whose aim is to help you get the most out of your Medicare and MassHealth Standard benefits and offers you extra services that can help you stay healthy at no extra cost.
Under NaviCare, your primary-care physician will work with a team to develop your own personal-care plan based on what kind of care you need.
You will have a geriatric-support-service coordinator who will help arrange for community services.
You'll also have your own personal nurse case manager and navigator, who will work together to coordinate and manage your health-care needs along with your doctors, social workers and other health-care specialists.
My guests are: Katherine “Kathie” Metzger, executive director of NaviCare; and Lynn Patterson, director of government-services clinical programs for Fallon Community Plan.
