Regional Accountable Entities (RAEs) are responsible for promoting physical and behavioral health for individuals (members) enrolled in Health First Colorado (Colorado Medicaid). The RAEs contract and support a network of Primary Care Medical Providers (PCMPs) to serve as members’ central point of care. In addition, the RAEs provide or arrange for the delivery of mental health and substance use disorder services. A RAE can help members connect with non-medical services within their region. A RAE is assigned based on location of a member’s PCMP.
This training will introduce regional RAE coordinators as well as fellow contractors describing their experiences working with RAEs. These Medicaid funded services can be used in conjunction with DHS services or on cases that have no DHS involvement. The training will give more detail on available services and how they are utilized. We will provide contact information for your local coordinator and how to contact them. There will be case examples, and all are encouraged to bring case specific questions. If you’re running into a lack of potential placements or services, this would be a good opportunity to ask how involving a RAE could help.
