In Colorado, the Medicaid agency has used the Accountable Care provision in the Affordable Care Act and created Regional Care Coordination Organizations. There are seven regions and each region is served by one of five RCCOs. Each RCCO is required to have client involvement. CCDC works closely with the RCCO serving the Western Slope and Larimer County.

There will be changes to this model and in July 2018 the RCCOs will become that Regional Accountable Entity (RAE). The RAEs mission will be to integrate services by managing the payments for mental or behavioral health. The relationship between the RAE and LTSS is a topic of discussion. It is important to have people with disabilities involved in each RCCO and at discussions at the state level.

CCDC is working with partners at the Colorado Consumer Health Initiative and the Colorado Center for Law and Policy to increase client involvement with these systems.  We are focusing on Region 6 (Jeffco, Boulder, Broomfield, Gilpin and Clear Creek) and Region 4 (Pueblo to Alamosa, Lamar, and Lake Counties with all point in between).  We have opportunities for Medicaid clients in those regions.  Contact Shannon Secrest at for more information.
