The Georgia Collaborative

The Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) has selected ValueOptions, Inc. to serve as the department’s administrative services organization (ASO). Under the terms of the contract, ValueOptions will assist in the administration of DBHDD’s behavioral health and developmental disability care through a wide range of services. A request for proposal released by the department in March sought to combine functions of existing contracts. This process allowed DBHDD an opportunity to modify and add new deliverables that will improve coordination, increase efficiency and support high-quality care for individuals served by the department.
