In March of 2015, the Accountable Care Collaborative launched the Chronic Pain Disease Management Program to improve the health of clients with chronic conditions and address rising rates of prescription abuse in Colorado. The program is modeled after the Project ECHO® programs developed by the University of New Mexico and uses interactive video to connect Primary Care Medical Providers to a team of specialists with expertise in a variety of pain management disciplines. This program promotes the use of evidence-based pain management practices and supports PCMPs in treating clients with chronic pain within their primary care practice. It also supports the goals of Governor Hickenlooper and the Colorado Consortium for Drug Abuse and Prevention by helping Primary Care Medical Providers treat chronic pain and reduce prescription painkiller abuse among Medicaid members. The program is administered by Connecticut’s Community health Center (CHC), the only Federally Qualified Health Center with experience replicating the Project ECHO model.

The new ACC: Medicare-Medicaid Program designed to help Medicare-Medicaid enrollees has arrived in Colorado. The program will help Medicare and Medicaid work together making it easier for clients to get the services they need and the ACC Regional Care Collaborative Organizations (RCCOs) will be working to assist providers with client care coordination activities.
Beginning in Fall 2014, clients will be enrolled in the ACC: Medicare-Medicaid program and get to experience all the benefits of care coordination the program has to offer. Clients will keep their doctors and services. Nothing changes for enrollees except that their services will now be coordinated in a way that works best for them.
If you have questions regarding the ACC: Medicare-Medicaid Program, please contact us at ACCMedicareMedicaidProgram@state.co.us.
