Patient First primary medical providers and other primary care providers are invited to attend one of seven 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 primary care providers which will be discussed at these regional meetings. If ACHN is approved by the federal government, the networks are expected to be implemented on October 1, 2019.
All meetings will be from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. An online session will be scheduled in February.
