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 offer new integrated health care plans that provide members with choices. Under the new DDD Integrated Health Care Plans, Managed Care Organizations will be responsible for providing integrated health care plans to members. These new plans will be known as DDD Choice Plans.
The DDD Choice Plans will offer members who are eligible for Arizona Long Term Care and DDD services, physical health care services, behavioral health care services, and Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) in a more convenient and efficient process, making it easier for members to get the supports and services they need.
The purpose of the DDD Choice Plans is to give members options they can use for the most comprehensive care to address all their care needs. This integration will allow for better coordination of services and make the system easier for members and providers to navigate.
