Pantano Behavioral Health Services is one of five Comprehensive Services Providers responsible for ensuring that a variety of behavioral health services are provided to children and their families in Pima County. To receive Pantano funded services, children and their families must be eligible for Arizona’s state-funded Medicaid program, the Arizona Healthcare Cost Containment System (AHCCCS). To be AHCCCS eligible, families must meet certain income requirements.
Federal and state dollars fund Pantano through a contract with the Regional Behavioral Health Authority (RBHA). The Community Partnership of Southern Arizona (CPSA) is the RBHA for Pima County (www.cpsa-rbha.org).
Pantano has two provider partner agencies: Arizona’s Children Association (AzCA) and Intermountain Centers for Human Development (ICHD). In addition, Pantano contracts with other local behavioral health providers so that Pantano-enrolled children and families (our members) receive the care they need. Each member receives services based on a plan for care developed by the Child & Family Team (CFT).
Services are provided in offices as well as in a family’s home or in the community, depending on the need of the person being served. Pantano’s range of services includes psychiatric assessment and treatment, intensive in-home services, individual, family and group counseling, case management and therapeutic foster care.
More information about Pantano and its partner agencies is available here.
