Caring Home Care is a leader in political engagement, understanding that we are standing for our aides, patients and community.

This event will continue through the week, and when finished, home care employees and business will have met with 80 of the US House and 100 % of the US Senate.

Education Essentials for Case Managers in Florida

Surfmed roll out TampaEarlier this week SurfMed Executives traveled to Tampa to teach over 70 Sunshine Health case managers the basics of incontinence and DME and wheelchair rehabilitation. The lessons were taught by SurfMed CEO Jeff Rittenberg and Director Sean Schwinghammer. The case managers are preparing to deal with the roll-out of Florida’s Medicaid Managed Care Reform program in Regions 5 and 6, which includes all of greater St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa including all of Lakeland and Polk Counties as far east as Sebring.

Sunshine Health should have an abundance of patients who will immediately require face to face meetings, care plan reviews and authorizations or new supplies and services. It is a daunting task which is why SurfMed educates case managers, to help them be prepared for any eventuality. Also the SurfMed staff is ready to take case managers calls all day long to assist in the transition.
