New CMMI Innovation Grants Offer Unique Funding Opportunity for PAC Providers

On Wednesday May 15th, The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) announced a new $1 billion initiative that will provide grant funding to awardees to test new innovative care delivery and payment models. This is the second round of health innovation grants; awardees of the first round were announced last May. Unlike the very first round, which lacked specific focus, this round has narrowed its focus to specific settings and patient populations, and it places a special attention on post-acute care providers. AHCA recognizes the value of this opportunity for its members, and will be offering two webinars in the coming weeks to explain the program in more detail – stay tuned! More information on the Health Innovation Awards – Round Two can be found on CMMI’s website, or by clicking here. Please contact James Michel (jmichel@ahca.org) with any questions.
