State Innovation Models Initiative: Model Design Project Profiles

State of Connecticut

Geographic Reach: Connecticut
Funding Amount:$2,852,335

Summary

Over the next 6 months, the State of Connecticut will receive up to $2,852,335 to develop its State Health Care Innovation Plan. Funding will be subject to successful completion of the terms and conditions for the State Innovation Model initiative.

Connecticut will collaborate with public and private stakeholders to design a transformed health care delivery system that incorporates promotion of integrated care models; use of the Health Insurance Exchange to inform and connect consumers to coverage; expanded supply of primary care physicians and other professionals; and increased engagement among regulators, providers and consumers. The resulting payment and delivery system model will advance greater alignment across multiple payers on contracting and payment strategies that promote value over volume, greater consistency in quality and other performance metrics, and expanded primary care.
