AHCCCS Complete Care (ACC) Began October 1, 2018
RBHAs are Aligned With ACC Plan Names
Especially for American Indian Members
- TRBHAs did not change on October 1, 2018
- Members can get integrated (physical and behavioral health services) through the ACC Plan or American Indian Health Program (AIHP)
- Members may continue to receive behavioral health services from a TRBHA (where available) if enrolled with AIHP
- No change to services or enrollment for members with Serious Mental Illness
- Members can still access services from IHS/638 facility at any time regardless of enrollment
- Tribal members continue to have choice at any time
On October 1, 2018, most AHCCCS members moved to an integrated ACC health plan and receive all behavioral health services through their chosen ACC plan instead of from a RBHA.
However, the RBHAs and TRBHAs continue to serve:
- Foster children enrolled in CMDP, including those CMDP members who have a CRS condition
- Members enrolled with DES/DDD
- Individuals determined to have a Serious Mental Illness.
RBHA-covered services did not change for these members. RBHAs also continue to provide crisis, grant funded and state-only funded services. To align with their respective ACC health plans in each geographic service area, the names of the RBHAs changed on Oct. 1. 2018.
