Relocation Service Coordination-Targeted Case Management (RSC–TCM), is a Medical Assistance (MA) reimbursed case management benefit that helps people living in eligible institutions, like hospitals, nursing homes, and treatment centers. It’s designed to help you gain access to needed medical, social, and educational and other services so that you can leave the institution and move to a community-based setting.

Under the benefit, we can help you find a place to live that’s safe and affordable—even if your rental history isn’t so great (many people don’t have great rental histories). Our goal is to find you a place where you can be happy for a long time. There are some limits, however. You’ll need to meet certain requirements, and the benefit lasts for only six months.

My Relocation worker was awesomely good, he was patient and understanding.
