Medicaid Innovation Accelerator Program (IAP) Information Session for State Medicaid Agencies
CMS launched the Medicaid Innovation Accelerator Program (IAP) in July 2014 with the goal of improving health and health care for Medicaid beneficiaries by supporting states’ ongoing efforts related to payment and service delivery reforms. IAP is a Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services (CMCS) Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation collaboration designed to build state capacity and support ongoing innovation in Medicaid. IAP provides targeted support to states’ ongoing delivery system reform efforts across four program priority areas: (1) substance use disorders; (2) Medicaid beneficiaries with complex needs and high costs; (3) community integration - long-term services and supports, and (4) physical/mental health integration.
On October 22, 2015 from 2:00-3:00pm ET, an information session for state Medicaid agencies will be held to describe IAP’s third program area, Community Integration - Long-Term Services and Supports (CI-LTSS), as well as provide an overview of the types of targeted program support available to Medicaid agencies seeking to promote community integration for Medicaid beneficiaries using LTSS.
