CMS State Innovation Model (SIM) Test Award - Michigan

Program Location: 
Lansing, MI
Payer Type: 

In December of 2014, CMMI announced that the State of Michigan will receive approximately $70 million over 48 months to implement and test its State Health Care Innovation Plan.

Michigan will implement its Blueprint for Health Innovation with the creation of Accountable Systems of Care (ASC). ASCs will be networks of providers utilizing patient-centered medical homes supported by payment models that align incentives. The ASCs are further supported by Community Health Innovation Regions (CHIRs), which are cross-sector partnerships that address population health and connect patients with relevant community services. The state will test whether ASCs working with CHIRs can achieve better health outcomes at lower cost for three targeted populations of patients: those with adverse birth outcomes, frequent emergency department users, and those with multiple chronic conditions. Through SIM funding and resources, Michigan will deliver technical assistance, workforce training, quality improvement skills, and data analytics to providers throughout the state.
