On July 1, 2017, Colorado plans to integrate physical health and behavioral health services for Medicaid beneficiaries enrolled in the Accountable Care Collaborative (ACC) by contracting with a single administrative entity to deliver all Medicaid services. Currently, physical health services are provided by Regional Care Coordination Organizations (RCCOs) and behavioral health services are provided by behavioral health organizations (BHOs). In the fall of 2016, Colorado will release a request for proposals (RFP) for administrative entities. The state will contract with one administrative entity in each region of the state to manage both physical health and behavioral health services.
