The North Sound ACH region is one of two regions where all five of the state’s Medicaid Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) have a presence.
One of those MCOs recently made a $20,000 contribution to a fund we are building, a Community Resilience Fund, intended to support upstream, primarily social and community factors that impact health. Amerigroup’s contribution was the first deposit into that fund and we are grateful for their support.
In April 2018, the North Sound ACH Board of Directors agreed to contribute 10% of all earnings that the ACH receives into that Community Resilience Fund. In early 2019, the Board will begin developing a strategic plan for how those funds will be distributed in the region.* We are hoping that other organizations will be interested in making contributions such as Amerigroup did.
*Reminder, all standing meetings of the Board are open o the public, either in person or by phone. Check our calendar to see about upcoming meetings.
