On May 22, 2014, CMS announced the second round of funding under the State Innovation Models Initiative. This initiative was announced in 2013 to support state design and testing of multi-payer payment and delivery models — such as accountable care organizations, accountable care communities, patient centered medical homes and bundled payments — intended to generate savings and improve care for Medicare, Medicaid, and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries. Under round two, CMS will award as much as $30 million for 15 Model Design cooperative agreements (providing funding and technical assistance as states assess system improvement options) and up to $700 million in funding for 12 state-sponsored Model Test cooperative agreements (intended to assist in implementing developed models).
