State of Ohio
Geographic Reach: Ohio
Funding Amount: $3,000,000
Over the next 6 months, the State of Ohio will receive up to $3,000,000 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.
Ohio will develop a plan to improve overall health system performance through statewide implementation of innovative payment and delivery models. Ohio proposes a planning process that engages public and private stakeholders to formalize a comprehensive plan to build upon ongoing transformation activities, with potential refinements based on learning to date and stakeholder feedback. The goal of the project will be to create a roadmap for expanding the capacity and availability of qualified medical homes to most Ohioans, and to define and administer episode-based payments for acute medical events across Medicaid/CHIP, Medicare, and commercially insured patients.
