Last week the AZ Department of Administration decided to ask the Arizona Office of Administrative Hearings to conduct an official hearing regarding our October 1 contract award for the Regional Behavioral Health Authority in Maricopa County. You may remember that the ADOA issued a stay last month that stopped the transition process. We received a notice from the ADOA yesterday that the hearing is scheduled for the week of August 12.
In the meantime, our procurement and legal team will be preparing for the August Hearing… and our folks on the 2nd floor will be busy working on the integration processes. No matter what happens with the contract, we’re working hard to ensure that we will soon have medical care integrated with behavioral health care for the people in Maricopa County.
