Volume XI, Issue VI - September 2017

From: Maria Bruni, Acting Director
Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse


The Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (IDHS/DASA) publishes Annual Provider Performance and Outcomes Reports on the IDHS/DASA Web page. These reports provide data on engagement, retention, and continuity of care performance measures for individual providers, IDHS regions, and statewide averages. IDHS/DASA SFY 2016 Annual Performance Reports are now available at https://www.dhs.state.il.us/page.aspx?item=97176

As always, we show the number of admissions on the reports. Please note that DARTS only collects service data for services reimbursed through DASA contract and Medicaid fee-for-service (FFS). Data on services reimbursed by Medicaid Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) are not reported by providers into DARTS, and therefore, the admissions and other service information are not included in these provider performance reports, nor in the statewide report. It should be noted that beginning in State Fiscal Year 2016, an increasing number (approximately 65 percent) of Illinois Medicaid patients belonged to a Managed Care Organization (MCO) and did not have MCO-reimbursed substance use disorder treatment service data reported in DARTS.
