Empower Healthcare Solutions, LLC (Empower) is a Provider-led Arkansas Shared Savings Entity (PASSE). This new model of care was developed to address the overall health care needs of Medicaid beneficiaries who have complex behavioral health or intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) service needs. Goals of the PASSE program are to:

  • Coordinate and integrate treatment delivery across all of the individual’s providers
  • Improve total health outcomes for the target population
  • Increase local service capacity to help individuals with IDD access quality care and support services within their own communities
  • Ensure flexibility in the individuals’ service array to address all of their health care needs
  • Slow or decrease spending growth and costly acute care stays by promoting efficient and effective services
  • We encourage you share our award-winning Achieve Solutions site with your Empower patients. It allows members to access health information, tools and other resources on more than 200 topics, including depression, autism, substance use, grief and loss, and work/life balance.
