MANA Physicians Statement on PASSE

Effective March 1, 2019, the State of Arkansas chose to move certain Medicaid patients into the Provider-Led Arkansas Shared Savings Entity (PASSE) program.  These patients are no longer covered by Medicaid and are now covered by one of the PASSE products (Arkansas Total Care, Empower or Summit).

Despite MANA’s extensive efforts to negotiate an acceptable contract to allow our physicians to be providers in one of the PASSE plans, we do not have a contract at this time.*

We share your concerns and are working to resolve this situation so MANA Physicians can continue to provide excellent care for these patients.

*NWA Psychiatry will be in-network providers effective March 1, 2019.
