Join Commonwealth North's Health Care Action Coalition, Thursday, May 28th, from 7:30am to 9:00 am, at the UAA health Sciences Building.
Our guest speakers will be Deb Taylor, Health Program Manager IV / Quality Assurance Manager, and Clarissa Moon, Medical Assistance Administrator III, at the Division of Health Care Services, Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.
Deb and Clarissa will discuss the Division's new program, the Alaska Medicaid Coordinated Care Initiative (AMCCI). AMCCI provides one-on-one case management services and helps patients obtain health care in the appropriate setting. The program aims to increase patient well-being while also reducing unnecessary emergency room visits thereby reducing health care costs.
Learn more about the program from the division's website here.
From the Division's website:
The AMCCI is designed to assist Alaska Medicaid members who need help navigating the health care system and can benefit from case management services, including care coordination.
The Division seeks to work closely with the medical and social service community to support and help coordinate care for patients with complex medical-and often social-issues. Because these patients may have trouble navigating the health care system, they may become frequent utilizers of the hospital emergency room for issues that may be better treated in a primary care setting. Helping these patients gain the ability to navigate and appropriately utilize the health care system and take control of their health, with the guidance of primary care providers and case managers, can make a dramatic impact on their well-being and on overall health care costs..."
