Regional meetings to update stakeholders on RCO implementation

The Alabama Medicaid Agency has rescheduled a series of regional meetings for physicians, hospital officials and other interested parties who want to know more about Alabama Medicaid’s plans to implement Regional Care Organizations.

The meetings will be held in Birmingham, April 10; Mobile, April 14; Tuscaloosa, April 29; and Montgomery, May 5. In addition, an online session will be scheduled on May 6 for those unable to attend in person.

A brief overview of the RCO implementation effort to date will be given although most of the time will be allocated to participants’ questions and comments.
