Alabama Medicaid implemented Patient Care Networks of Alabama (PCNA) in August 2011, creating four community networks that assist primary medical providers to become medical homes, coordinate care, and teach self-management skills. These PCNAs enhance the Agency’s existing Primary Care Case Management program for the Medicaid population, Patient 1st. In June 2013, Alabama’s governor signed into law and approved Regional Care Organizations (RCOs) to build on the four existing PCNA pilots and manage a continuum of health care services for the majority of Medicaid beneficiaries.
