Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Accepting Applications for the Accountable Health Communities Model

Monday, January 25, 2016

Many of the biggest drivers of health and health care costs are beyond the scope of health care alone. The Accountable Health Communities (AHC) model, administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), addresses a critical gap between clinical care and community services in the current health care delivery system by testing a systematic approach to identifying and addressing the health-related social needs of Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries.

 CMS is currently accepting applications to participate in the AHC model. Continuum of Care (CoC) and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) program funding recipients and subrecipients are encouraged to partner with applying organizations in their communities, or to apply directly. Applications are due by March 31. Interested applicants must submit a letter of intent by February 8.
