Accountable Communities Public Webinar 

The Office of MaineCare Services is holding a public webinar to provide an overview of the Accountable Communities (AC) program, which is Maine’s version of a Medicaid Accountable Care Organization. Specifically, OMS is prepared to discuss AC program fundamentals, including program design and historic outcomes, how to participate in the AC program, and how it aligns with other MaineCare Value-Based Purchasing initiatives. 

Who should attend the session? 

Content in this session will be tailored toward stakeholders seeking an introduction to the AC program, including: 

· New staff of AC entities; 

· Health system administrators or clinicians interested in joining the AC program; and, 

· Community partners or health care providers that are exploring partnership opportunities with ACs in their area.
