Press Release: Medicaid

Medicaid seeks long-term care ideas during statewide meetings

PDF Version

Consumers, family members, caregivers and others are invited to participate in one of nine meetings during September and October to hear more about Alabama Medicaid’s planned Integrated Care Networks and to share their ideas about how services can be improved for people who are older or disabled.

The meetings will be held between September 20 and October 19 in Huntsville, Russellville, Anniston, Homewood (Birmingham), Demopolis, Northport, Montgomery, Dothan and Mobile. Morning sessions, to be held between 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., are designed for consumers, caregivers and advocates. Afternoon sessions will be targeted to direct service providers of health care and long term services and supports as well as provider association representatives and other interested parties. All meetings are open to the public.

Meetings, locations and times are listed below. All locations are accessible.

The sessions are a follow-up to informational sessions held in June. During this round of meetings, focus groups will be conducted, providing attendees a forum to share thoughts and feedback about the current state of LTSS in an effort to help guide development of the ICN program.

State legislation passed in 2015 established a competitively bid, integrated network to provide long-term care services to Medicaid recipients. Patterned after Regional Care Organization legislation, the new law creates a provider-organized, at-risk system that is to begin no later than October 1, 2018.

Participants with special needs or questions should call (334) 242-5018 or email ICNInfo@medicaid.alabama.gov so that appropriate supports are available.
