Accountable Care Collaborative Phase II - Provider and Stakeholder Resource Center

The Behavioral Health Independent Provider Network (IPN) Forum was created for behavioral health providers to engage with and partner collaboratively with the Department of Health Care Policy (the Department) and Financing and Regional Accountable Entities (RAEs). The Department published frequently asked questions and answers about key behavioral health initiatives and policies that may impact the IPN. Please visit our IPN Forum page for additional information. 

On July 1, 2018, the next iteration of the Accountable Care Collaborative (ACC) launched. The ACC seeks to leverage the proven successes of Colorado Medicaid's programs to enhance the Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid program) member and provider experience. For more information go to the ACC Phase II page.

The Department has published and will regularly update information on this Provider and Stakeholder Resource Center. This resource center includes fact sheets, FAQs webinars and other resources for providers and stakeholders about Phase II.
