Minnesota Accountable Health Model
Minnesota has received a $45 million grant to help its providers and communities work together to create healthier futures for Minnesotans. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' grant is part of the State Innovation Model (SIM) initiative.
Minnesota will use the funds to drive health care reform in the state and to test the Minnesota Accountable Health Model. The goal of this model is to improve health in communities, provide better care, and lower health care costs. The model will strive to ensure all Minnesotans have the option to receive team-based, coordinated, patient-centered care that increases and facilitates access to medical care, behavioral health care, long term care, and other services. The model will expand Minnesota's current Medicaid Health Care Delivery System Demonstration and will include 15 accountable communities for health. These communities will develop and test strategies for keeping community members healthy and out of the hospital.
