The Alaska Medicaid Coordinated Care Initiative Is Here to Help

The Alaska Medicaid Coordinated Care Initiative (AMCCI) is a voluntary program that provides one-on-one case management services including care coordination, scheduling appointments, addressing barriers, and referrals to specialists and social service supports.

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.

The primary objective of the AMCCI is to promote quality, cost effective health outcomes by ensuring that coordinated medical services are provided in the most appropriate setting. Other goals include focusing on prevention and enhanced integration of primary medical care and behavioral health services. And most importantly, the AMCCI hopes to make a difference by improving the health and quality of life for all of its members.
