Recovery Care Support
SOCOM's Care Coalition Recovery Care Coordinators (RCCs) provide oversight and assistance for Special Operations Forces (SOF) Wounded Ill & Injured (WII) service members and their families through a continuum of care and recovery using the Comprehensive Recovery Plan and Comprehensive Transition Plan. They provide direct, lifelong assistance to SOF personnel who are wounded, ill, or injured through effective follow up contact and collaboration with multidisciplinary teams (MDT), medical case managers and other military agencies. They also provide coordination for medical and non-medical services and facilitate smooth rehabilitation and transition back to active duty or civilian life for SOF WII service members. Additionally, they collect, maintain and analyze data for planning and tracking purposes.
The RCCs work closely with SOF WII service members, their families and their recovery teams to develop a Comprehensive Recovery Plan. This plan identifies the service member's and family's goals and the resources they need to achieve them, such as assistive technology, education, employment, or housing. The RCC uses the plan to guide SOF WII service members and their families along the road to recovery, rehabilitation and return to duty or transition into the civilian community.
All SOF service members who have serious or catastrophic wounds, illnesses or injuries are eligible to receive the support of an RCC. SOF WII service members may self-refer or be referred by medical or administrative personnel, Military Service Wounded Warrior Program staff or a family member.
The Recovery Care Coordinator works with the SOF Wounded Warrior to manage available options and information.
