State of Alaska, Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Health Care Services - Coordinated Care Initiative (AMCCI)


The Alaska Medicaid Coordinated Care Initiative (AMCCI) is designed to assist Alaska Medicaid members who need help navigating the healthcare system and can benefit from case management services. Because these members may have trouble navigating the healthcare system, they may become frequent utilizers of the hospital emergency room for issues that may be better treated in a primary care setting.

The Division of Health Care Services has contracted with Qualis Health to provide case management services to high-utilizing AMCCI members. Qualis Health works closely with the medical and social service community to support and help coordinate care for these patients.

The AMCCI program is a pilot project. The AMCCI is a voluntary program.


Goals of the AMCCI

The primary objective of the AMCCI is to promote quality, cost-effective health outcomes by ensuring that coordinated medical services are provided in the most appropriate setting. Other goals include focusing on prevention and enhanced integration of primary medical care and behavioral health services. And most importantly, the AMCCI hopes to make a difference by improving the health and quality of life for Alaska Medicaid members.
