Health Care Innovation Awards

Rural Assistance Center

Letter of Intent (Required): Jun 28, 2013
Application: Aug 15, 2013
The Health Care Innovation Awards will provide funding to test new payment and service delivery models that will deliver better care and lower costs for Medicare, Medicaid, and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) enrollees.

Funding will be awarded for organizations to test and evaluate new payment and service delivery models that have a high likelihood of driving health care system transformation and delivering better outcomes. Specifically, in this second round, CMS is seeking proposals in the following categories:

  • Models that are designed to rapidly reduce Medicare, Medicaid, and/or CHIP costs in outpatient and/or post-acute settings
  • Models that improve care for populations with specialized needs
  • Models that test approaches for specific types of providers to transform their financial and clinical models
  • Models that improve the health of populations – defined geographically (health of a community); clinically (health of those with specific diseases); or by socioeconomic class – through activities focused on engaging beneficiaries, prevention (for example, a diabetes prevention program or a hypertension prevention program), wellness, and comprehensive care that extend beyond the clinical service delivery setting
