CMS Providing State Guidance on Medicaid Integrated Care Models

CMS has issued two letters in a series that seek to provide states with a blueprint for designing and implementing Medicaid care delivery and payment reforms.

The letters, which provide state options for innovative models in fee-for-service Medicaid that do not require a waiver, describe policy considerations for creating integrated care models, and CMS says this could include, but is not limited to:
  • Medical or health homes;
  • Accountable care organizations;
  • ACO-like models; and
  • Alternative arrangements that "emphasize person-centered, continuous, coordinated and comprehensive care."
