The Check-in Care Journey

Call: (630) 522-4904

Email: [email protected]

All Check-In needs to get started is your contact information and a general description of your needs.

Step 1: Reaching Out

The care journey begins by sign-up or referral. Once connected with Check-In, a trained “Care Coordinator,” will be assigned to you or your loved one within 24-48 business hours.  The Care Coordinator will listen, answer questions, and begin the care process.

Step 2: Getting Connected

After administering an initial intake screening, the Care Coordinator will develop a personalized care plan, matching you or your loved one's unique needs to the programs and organizations best able to provide help.

Step 3: Receiving Care

The Care Coordinator will then assist in scheduling care, with treatment options ranging from outpatient and telehealth programs to intensive, in-person care programs. The Care Coordinator will continue to serve as an advisor and guide throughout the care journey.

The Veteran Wellness Alliance, in partnership with Combined Arms, the Wounded Warrior Project, and Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families, created Check-In.
