What is Medical Care Coordination?
Medical Care Coordination (MCC) is a program that combines your medical and psychosocial support in one place. The MCC team will work with you and your physician to determine your needs and goals related to your health. If you are having trouble taking your medications, getting to your appointments, keeping track of your other medical appointments, having enough food, or finding someone to talk to, we can help.
Medical Care Coordination services are available to help connect patients with services and organizations to support overall well-being, including:
- Medical Care
- Medical Providers
- Treatment Adherence
- Dental Care
- Emergency Housing
- Employment Services
- Food Resources
- Food Banks
- Dietary Specialists
- Mental Health
- Therapy Referrals
- Psychiatry Referrals
- Substance Use Referrals
- Support Groups
- Legal Services
- And more!
To be enrolled in the MCC program, you need to:
- Be HIV-positive
- Receive your HIV care at UCLA
- Live in Los Angeles County
- Complete a screening and an assessment with the MCC team
Each patient action plan is customized to your individual needs, with your feedback. You determine what your priorities are!
If you are interested in having your medical and psychosocial support services tied to your HIV medical care, please ask your HIV provider to refer you to the MCC program.
This project is supported by funds received from the division of HIV and STD programs, the state of California, Department of Public Health Services, Office of AIDS, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources Services Administration.
