Section 1115 Waiver Update e-Memo

Dear Provider,

As DBH and Optum prepare for “Go Live” February 1st we are excitedly testing a variety of systems including the Optum website. During our review DBH staff found a live posting of the draft Alaska Medicaid 1115 Waiver Services posted on the Optum website. Please be advised this posting was done in error.
This eMemo is to inform all Alaska Behavioral Health providers that this posting was done in error and the services, rates and fees are draft and subject to change.
If providers happened to come across this 1115 Waiver Services posting on the Optum Website, please note this is a draft list only and providers should not make any program or electronic health record changes based on this list.
If you have further questions please feel free to email
