The Arizona Department of Economic Security (ADES), Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) is committed to empowering Arizonans with developmental disabilities to lead self-directed, healthy and meaningful lives. As part of its mission, DDD will provide members eligible for the Division and the Arizona Long Term Care Services (ALTCS), a new service delivery system to provide integrated physical health services, behavioral health services, and Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS).
DDD will contract with managed care organizations (MCOs), called “DDD Health Plans,” to provide all physical and behavioral health services, as well as the following LTSS: skilled nursing facilities; emergency alert services; and habilitative physical therapy for members over the age of twenty-one (21). DDD will provide and manage all other LTSS and Support Coordination.
The integration of services and supports provided to members will be achieved through the close collaboration and care coordination between the DDD Health Plans, DDD, and their respective providers, resulting in improved health outcomes.
The coverage of physical and behavioral health services under a single DDD Health Plan and coordination of care between DDD and their future DDD Health Plans will offer members a more convenient and efficient process to get the services and supports they need.
