3) Targeted Case Management Program is a program that provides targeted medical assistance clients with access to comprehensive medical and social services to encourage the cost effective use of medical care and community resources, while ensuring the client's freedom of choice and promoting the well-being of the individual. Individuals who wish to enroll as Targeted Case Managers must complete a Base Provider Enrollment Application, an Outpatient Provider Agreement, and an HIV Provider Case Management Addendum.

This program was developed to help patients with low incomes receive the medication they need.
