Health Care Innovation Awards Round Two

This is the second round of an initiative that will fund applicants who propose new payment and service delivery models that will provide better health, better health care, and lower costs through improved quality for Medicare, Medicaid, and Children?s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) enrollees.


Applicants will propose new service delivery models along with the design of corresponding new payment models.

If their applications are funded, awardees will be required to implement the service delivery models at the start of the three-year cooperative agreement period and submit a fully developed new Medicare, Medicaid, or CHIP payment model by the end of the cooperative agreement period.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), at its discretion and consistent with the requirements of Section 1115A of the Social Security Act, may further develop one or more of these payment and service delivery models and open them to participation through a subsequent solicitation.

Successful applicants will demonstrate that they can implement a model that improves quality of care and reduces cost within the first six months of the award and delivers net savings to CMS within three years.----The Healthcare Innovation Awards Round 2 Application requires the following four separate supplemental forms.
