You’ll also get added support to help you reach your health potential, such as:

You will see your PCP first for most health problems. Your PCP is a doctor or other provider who makes sure you get the care you need to stay healthy.

You’ll have one care coordinator who will get to know you and help manage your care.

Your Cityblock Health care team will work together to meet your health needs.

A long-term services (LTS) coordinator is part of your care team if you need long-term services and supports (LTSS) services. LTSS are services offered to members who need assistance to do everyday tasks, such as taking a bath, getting dressed, making food and taking medicine. Most of these services are provided in your home or the community, but they may be provided in a nursing home or hospital.

Your LTS coordinator will help you find community resources and supports to help you with overall wellness, independence and recovery.

You may need help with everyday tasks like taking a bath, getting dressed, preparing meals and eating. Personal care attendant services assist you with activities of daily living, if you qualify. For help with these hands-on tasks, you can hire a worker yourself or use an agency to hire one for you.

You may need help with skills and activities that help you manage your health, live independently and take part in your community.

The Tufts Health One Care member services team has bilingual staff and offers FREE translation services in more than 200 languages. We offer alternate formats such as large print and formats that work with screen reader technology, as well as braille and audio.

Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is a clinical program that provides education and information about your medicines. A Pharmacist will look for ways to improve your drug therapy. Services offered through the MTM program include a Comprehensive Medication Review and Targeted Medication Reviews.
