Behavioral Health Crisis Prevention Intervention and Stabilization for Individuals with IDD (intellectual and developmental disabilities)

In partnership with Wellpoint (formerly known as Amerigroup), BlueCare Tennessee, and United Health Community Plan Managed Care Organizations (MCO), TennCare seeks to gather information and identify potential providers of Behavioral Health Crisis Prevention, Intervention, and Stabilization Services for Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) who experience challenging behaviors that place themselves and others at risk of harm, under a newly designed I/DD Stabilization Model of Support. A description of the proposed services and model of support is attached. Providers selected to provide this service will be contracted with TennCare MCOs to deliver the service.
