The state’s application to CMS for a $3 million State Innovation Models Grant is now online. If awarded, the grant would fund health care planning activities including hiring staff at state agencies and consultants. The project will work to align incentives among stakeholders to reform delivery and payment systems. The initiatives include coordinating data across payers, supporting providers in practice transformation, and expanding primary care capacity. The role of consumers and the Cabinet is unclear. The project was developed by state agencies; the activities would be coordinated by the Office of Health Care Reform and Innovation.
