Accountable Health Communities Model Offers $157 Million in CMS Funding

First few Article Sentences

It’s no secret that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) continue to seek opportunities to link payments to value-based outcomes. CMS recognizes that health providers can play a key role in helping patients navigate community services, particularly for those on Medicare and Medicaid. To test this, CMS has introduced a new funding initiative.

The program, announced in January by CMS, is a five-year program that will support up to 44 bridge organizations offering up to $157 million in total funding. Over the 5 year period, CMS will implement and test a three-track model initiative based on promising service delivery approaches linking beneficiaries with community services through awareness, assistance and alignment.
