About The Workforce Development Alliance

The Arizona Workforce Development Alliance (AWFDA) is comprised of all the AHCCCS Complete Care (ACC) & Regional Behavioral Health Authority (RBHA) Plans in the state of Arizona. This includes, Arizona Complete Health, Banner University Health Plans, Care 1st, Magellan Complete Care, Mercy Care, Steward Health Choice Arizona, and United Healthcare Community Plan. Together we act as a single point of contact for reference and direction for our shared provider network. This Alliance is dedicated to working with Relias, the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), health care Providers, Members, and Communities as a whole, to drive long lasting and effective changes in workforce development and Member outcomes. To achieve this vision, we are working collaboratively as 7 separately established Health Plans to assist the Provider network in the transition from a prescriptive and compliance based system, to a more autonomous, integrated, and competency based system.

Our Mission

To evaluate, monitor, and support the development of the capability, capacity, connectivity, culture, and commitment of our provider workforce. 


Since being formed in 2018, The Arizona Workforce Development Alliance(AWFDA) is responding to the new AHCCCS requirements for ACC/RBHA contracted Health Plans. The AWFDA is organized by the Workforce Development (WFD) department at AHCCCS and includes members from Relias Learning, and the Arizona Association of Health Plans  (AzAHP) membership.
