March 27, 2020: Alaska Medicaid Behavioral Health Provider Education is canceled.
Comagine Health and the Alaska Department of Behavioral Health remain committed to the safety needs of their staff, network providers and the public. We appreciate your understanding as we support Alaska’s effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. To reduce the likelihood of further exposure and possible contagion, we have jointly decided to cancel the AKBH May conference. All registrations will be canceled and refunded.

March 19, 2020: COVID-19 and Business Continuity
During the current COVID-19 emergency, Comagine Health is fully staffed and business operations are not interrupted.

For utilization review, case management and related activities, we are continuing to process requests and answer calls via our toll-free numbers during standard business hours. We have business continuity plans in place to serve our clients, health care providers, patients and communities while also protecting our staff and minimizing the spread of the illness.
