PASSE (Provider-Led Arkansas Shared Savings Entity)


~~PASSE (Provider-Led Arkansas Shared Savings Entity) is a new Medicaid program to address the needs of individuals who have intensive behavioral health and intellectual and developmental disabilities service needs.  The PASSE program is designed to help people not only connect to services from their doctors but also services in the community that those members might need. The goal is for the PASSE to help improve people’s health and let them take a more active role in their treatment
Through care coordination, the PASSE will help connect primary care physicians with specialty behavioral health providers and developmental disabilities services providers to create a complete plan of care for each member.  The care coordinator will also work with the members, their families and guardians, and people in the community to support the members to keep them healthy and safe.  Each member will have an opportunity to create goals for treatment, and the care coordinator will work with the member’s family to help each member achieve those goals.
