After a two-year process the state has referred to as “long and arduous,” the Department of Children and Families has changed its contract services administrator, or CSA, from ValueOptions to PerformCare.

The state awarded the contract to PerformCare, a Pennsylvania-based, full-service behavioral health managed care organization, in May, to be effective starting this month.

The contract runs for five years and replaces Value Options, which served as the department’s CSA since 2002. Representatives from ValueOptions did not explain the fate of the 60 workers it employed at its facility at 3705 Quakerbridge Road.

As the new CSA, PerformCare is charged with providing children, young adults, families, and caregivers with counseling services.
