Planning the Future of Integrated Healthcare Delivery

In November 2017, AHCCCS will issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) to integrate physical and behavioral healthcare services.

Read more about the Integrated Contractor RFP major decisions and the YH17-0059 Request for Information.

What is healthcare delivery integration?

For AHCCCS members, this means that as of October 2018, the healthcare plan you choose will manage the provider network for all your healthcare services, including your medical care (physical) as well as any behavioral health services you may need. So, instead of navigating two separate networks for medical and behavioral services, all your providers will be under one network, managed and paid for by a single healthcare plan.

Healthcare Delivery Integration

Who does this affect?

  • Adults on AHCCCS (excluding adults with Serious Mental Illness)
  • All children on AHCCCS (excluding foster children covered under CMDP)

What you need to know

  • Members will continue to be served by Regional Behavioral Health Authorities for specific crisis services.
  • American Indians will continue to have managed care or fee for service choice.

We want to hear from you!

As we plan this process we want to hear from AHCCCS members about your current physical and behavioral healthcare system, and what questions you have about the future integration.

AHCCCS is hosting community meetings throughout the state to gather feedback from members, families, advocates and providers to support and inform its efforts to develop integrated health plan contracts. Attend an upcoming community meeting:
