Adoption Support Program

Please be aware that there has been an error with a letter that went out to Apple Health Core Connections (AHCC) members in Chelan, Douglas and Grant Counties.  This letter from the Health Care Authority (HCA)/ProviderOne informs you that a child in your care is now enrolled into a Molina, or Amerigroup Behavioral Health Services Only (BHSO) program. This is inaccurate information.  Children in your care will continue to be enrolled in AHCC for behavioral health services.  We are not changing coverage for foster care, alumni of care, or adoption support populations.
