Resources for Post-Discharge and Transitions of Care

Transitioning from one care setting to another comes with risks for mishaps such as: worsening of health conditions, readmissions, and increased costs. The Provider Quick Reference Guide lists resources and services available to Optima Medicare members. This resource will be especially useful to Case Managers and Discharge Planners as a handy desk reference. Please also feel free to print and share these materials with Optima Medicare members to help them achieve successful transitions and improve outcomes.
