If you have any questions about the Patient 1st program, please contact Latonda Cunningham at 334-353-4122 or email her at Latonda.cunningham@medicaid.alabama.gov.

Prepare Now for the ACHN Program:
Schedule appointments as soon as possible with those patients on your panel, especially those that have not been seen in the previous 2 years, in order to ensure your provided services are considered when patients are attributed in October 2019.
