Case Management Services
What is a case manager?
A case manager works to find solutions, to provide assistance, and to bridge the gap between needs and resources, both academic and personal. A case manager meets with students to assess, plan, coordinate, and facilitate referrals to providers. Finally, a case manager helps students navigate the health insurance system, including enrollment, coverage, and limitations, supporting students in becoming informed consumers of healthcare.
The case manager in the Office of Wellness and Health Promotion collaborates with partners in all units of the Student Health Center, as well as those in the campus and surrounding community to connect LSU students to health and wellness resources.
