DDD members currently have to navigate multiple systems to access physical and behavioral health services. Members receive their physical health care services from a DDD contracted MCO, and their behavioral health services from a different MCO, called a Regional Behavioral Health Authority (RBHA).
Under the new contract, members will choose and enroll with a single DDD Health Plan. The DDD Health Plans will allow members (including members with a Children’s Rehabilitative Services [CRS] qualifying conditions and/or those who have a serious mental illness [SMI]) to access physical and behavioral health services through a single MCO. In addition to physical and behavioral health services, the DDD Health Plans will provide skilled nursing facilities, emergency alert services, and habilitative physical therapy for members over the age of twenty-one (21).
Members will continue to receive all other LTSS, including Support Coordination, through DDD.
