If you or your child have Medicaid, we can help you in many ways. Some of the things Gulf Coast TotalCare can do are:
Need a doctor? We can set you up with a primary care doctor.
Need a ride? We can help you get a ride to doctors’ appointments.
Don’t understand your or your child’s sickness? We can explain your health conditions to you and the best ways you can take care of yourself.
Confused by your medicines? We can check your medicines to make sure you are taking the right drugs and know when and how to use them.
In the hospital? We can visit you in the hospital and help you know what to do when you get home. We can also make sure you meet with your doctor after your hospital stay. We will even visit you in your home after a hospital stay to make sure you’re ok.
Don’t know what to ask your doctor? We can meet you at your doctor’s office to help answer your questions about your or your child’s health.
Don’t forget your mental health. We can also help you get an appointment with a mental health provider or at a community mental health center if you need one.
