core competencies of aaas

    • collaborative
    • transparent
conflict between mco and aaas
Conflict between MCO and AAAs
  • AAAs inhabit the LTSS space – cost containment with successful community based approach that MCOs wish to profit from
  • AAAs already know how to do what MCOs are promising to deliver in the future

  • Government doesn’t go back when policy is a mistake
