An assigned patient mgr at patient's medical insurance provuder

A single point person is needed within a patient's insurance company so the family caregiver has only to speak with one person who manages all the patients referrals and authorizations throughout medical management, member services and behavioral health. This will unburden the family's stress and free up many hours of being put on hold and bounced from dept to dept. While some insurance companies claim to have this system in place, the reality is , there is confusion on what this should look like and if in existence it must be in a very embryonic state and needs much more development.
