As you may be aware, the Arkansas Insurance Department has received 5 Letters of Intent from groups intending to form a PASSE. The next step for those intending to form a PASSE will be the submission of their conditional certification documents to the Arkansas Insurance Department by close of business on July 3, 2017. Attached you will find three documents that address many outstanding issues and questions we have received regarding the Provider Led Entity model. We will continue to work with everyone to address any concerns raised. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. – Brian Bowen

The Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Arkansas Insurance Department (AID) are extending the deadline for submission for Letters of Intent (LOIs) to form a risk-based provider-led organization, known as a Provider-led Arkansas Shared Savings Entity (PASSE), to June 15, 2017.

The Arkansas Healthcare Alliance, LLC was formed and incorporated in April 2017 in preparation of developing a comprehensive network of behavioral health, including substance abuse and inpatient psychiatry, and developmental disability providers. The intent of The Alliance, LLC is to participate as a member of a Provider-Led Arkansas Shared Savings Entity (PASSE).
DHS requires a Letter of Intent from each potential PASSE, which is due May 15. We are planning to finalize our LLC Members by May 10. That does not mean we can never make changes, it just means that we need to secure as many as possible so we can begin equity, distribution, programmatic, governance, etc. conversations within the LLC.
**Adding Members after May 15 will require legal work as well as additional steps within LLC and PASSE.
