Accountable Care Collaborative (ACC): Medicare-Medicaid Program

Full Benefit Medicare-Medicaid Enrollees are Coloradans who have both Medicare and regular Colorado Medicaid coverage.

On September 1, 2014, we will start enrolling Full Benefit Medicare-Medicaid Enrollees into the Accountable Care Collaborative (ACC). We will assign you to the Regional Care Collaborative Organization in your area. Your Regional Care Collaborative Organization will help coordinate your care. They will also make sure you are getting the services you need and seeing the right type of provider.

To learn more about the ACC: Medicare-Medicaid Program and your enrollment, please contact your Regional Care Collaborative Organizations.
