Alabama Community Care
We have been informed that the State of Alabama will be unable to move forward on its proposed managed care model that would use Regional Care Organizations to serve Medicaid patients.
Certainly, we are disappointed. We’ve worked very hard over the past three and a half years with our partners, communities, providers and with state officials to develop Alabama Community Care. We will continue to work with the State on alternative care models which build upon the successes of health home and maternity programs as the healthcare world continues to evolve towards population health.
We are grateful for your willingness to trust with the first steps of becoming an ALCC Provider and for your commitment to improving the health of our citizens.
Alabama Community Care, Inc. is a not-for-profit Probationary Regional Care Organization (RCO) established in 2014.
Through the partnership with Huntsville Hospital Health System, DCH Health System, Indian Rivers Mental Health Center and Sentara Health Plans, a subsidiary of Sentara Healthcare of Virginia, Alabama Community Care intends to work with local physicians, hospitals and other health care providers to improve the health of over 180,0001 Medicaid recipients in Regions A and C, covering 23 counties in west and north Alabama.2
When designated by the Alabama Medicaid Agency as a certified RCO, Alabama Community Care will be responsible for most aspects of care for Medicaid patients in North and West Alabama, including chronic illnesses, customized wellness programs, and integrated clinical and behavioral health services.
