Subject:FYI: Up to $1 Billion Available from CMS Health Care Innovation Awards: Children in Foster Care Identified as Category of Interest

FYI – From: Keplinger, Stephen [mailto:skeplinger@childwelfare.gov] Sent: Wednesday, May 15, 2013 11:08 AM To: Children's Bureau Quality Improvement Centers Subject: [cb-qic] Up to $1 Billion Available from CMS Health Care Innovation Awards: Children in Foster Care Identified as Category of Interest Children's Bureau Quality Improvement Centers --------------------------------------------------- Up to $1 Billion Available from CMS Health Care Innovation Awards: Children in Foster Care Identified as Category of Interest Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a Funding Opportunity Announcement for round two of the Health Care Innovation Awards. Under this announcement, up to $1 billion dollars will be awarded to applicants from across the country who propose 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. Funded by the Affordable Care Act and administered by the CMS Innovation Center, the second round of the Health Care Innovation Awards will support public and private organizations in four defined areas that have a high likelihood of driving health care system transformation and delivering better outcomes for Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP beneficiaries. The press release can be viewed at: http://www.hhs.gov/news/press/2013pres/05/20130515a.html The full announcement can be viewed at: http://www.grants.gov/search/search.do;jsessionid=M1pvRTZF8tsKNvN3b01X1pxLdjwl1Bt4vPkhGGMNtXHSmVBT8lh3!569523001?oppId=234673&mode=VIEW The first round of Health Care Innovation Awards, announced in November 2011, was a broad solicitation in which the CMS Innovation Center welcomed a wide range of proposals. In this round, CMS is specifically seeking proposals in the following categories: * Models that will rapidly reduce Medicare, Medicaid and/or CHIP costs in outpatient settings and/or post-acute care settings. Priority areas include diagnostic services, outpatient radiology, high-cost physician-administered drugs, home based services, therapeutic services and post-acute services. * Models that improve care for populations with specialized needs. Priority areas include high-cost pediatric populations, children in foster care, adolescents in crisis, and persons with Alzheimer’s disease, HIV/AIDS, serious behavioral health needs, or requiring long-term support and services. * Models that transform the financial and clinical models for specific types of providers and suppliers. Priority areas include models designed for specific physician specialties (e.g., oncology or cardiology), and pediatricians who provide services to children with complex medical issues. * Models that improve the health of populations – defined geographically, clinically, or by socioeconomic class – through activities focused on prevention, wellness, and comprehensive care that extends beyond the clinical service delivery setting and addresses the social determinants of health. Priority areas include, but not limited to, models that develop comprehensive population-based interventions, integrate clinical care with community-based interventions that focus on the underlying determinants of health, and integrate behavioral health care and primary care. The second round of Health Care Innovation Awards will fund applicants who propose new payment and service delivery models that have the greatest likelihood of driving health care system transformation and delivering better outcomes for Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP beneficiaries in the four Innovation Categories.
