The Managed Care Operations Unit through which Contract Management, Claims Processing and Business Operations are administered, is responsible for developing, maintaining and continually evaluating a provider network to ensure adequacy to provide quality services to individuals within the Detroit Wayne system and to provide oversight for contracts as it relates to performance, outcomes and regulatory compliance.  
In addition to maintaining the network, MCO ensures capacity at all levels of care including inpatient, outpatient, crisis residential, ACT, and intensive crisis stabilization.
This unit has on-going communication and facilitates education of the provider network including changes in policies and procedures, and new provider orientation.
