Meetings to Discuss ACHN Plans with Delivering Healthcare Professionals


Meetings to Discuss ACHN Plans with Delivering Healthcare Professionals

Delivering Healthcare Professionals (DHCPs) are invited to attend one of four upcoming meetings to learn more about Medicaid’s proposed Alabama Coordinated Health Networks (ACHNs). 

ACHNs are designed to create a single care coordination delivery system that effectively links patients, providers and community resources within each of seven regions. In coordination with ACHN, there will be a new way of paying DHCPs, which will be discussed at these meetings. If the federal government approves the waiver creating the ACHN, the networks expect to be implemented on October 1, 2019. 

Meetings will be at the following locations: Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile, and Huntsville. All meetings will be from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. The Agency will not be able to provide refreshments; however, attendees are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch to eat during the presentation.
