The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center) announced a funding opportunity for the Integrated Care for Kids (InCK) model. The model is a child-centered local service delivery and state payment model that aims to reduce expenditures and improve the quality of care for children under 21 years of age covered by Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) through prevention, early identification, and treatment of behavioral and physical health needs.
CMS intends to award funding for up to 8 cooperative agreements at a maximum of $16 million each as early as spring of 2019 to implement the seven year model. The funding opportunity can be viewed here. Applications must be submitted by June 10, 2019.
Registration information for the February 19, 2019, webinar is available here.
More information is also available on the Innovation Center website.
