Hello to our Provider Network! It is our responsibility as a Contractor to produce a Network Workforce Development Plan for each line of business (ACC, ALTCS E/PD, DCS/CMDP, DES/DDD, CMDP, and RBHA). A portion of this is currently being supported by the AzAHP Provider Workforce Development Plan which some of you have recently completed. This assessment compliments the AzAHP process but also accomplishes other required aspects from ACOM 407 Attachment A; a network workforce profile and a workforce capacity assessment. Completing this assessment will help us gather the necessary data to not only provide AHCCCS with the current situation, but also give us insight as to where we can help implement improvements across the network.

Please note that it is only required for you to fill this out ONCE. The information is being shared amongst the plans; thus, we only need one submission from your agency!
