The Arkansas Healthcare Alliance, LLC is excited to announce its membership with Empower Healthcare Solutions, LLC. The Alliance is one of seven members within Empower Healthcare Solutions, including ARCare, Independent Case Management, Preferred Family Healthcare, Statera, and Beacon Health Options. It is our intention to apply to become a Provider-led Arkansas Shared Services Entity (PASSE) in June 2017.  

The Arkansas Healthcare Alliance has 22 formal members, which serve behavioral health, substance abuse, inpatient psych, developmental disability / delay, child and youth services (CYS) populations across Arkansas. We continue to talk and encourage other Medicaid providers throughout the State, who would be providing ancillary services to BH and DD clients, to join the Alliance and our PASSE. Our goal is to establish a well-organized statewide network to provide the efficient and quality services to our clients.
