CMS Announces Transformative Model to Give States Incentives and Flexibilities to Redesign Health Care Delivery, Improve Equitable Access to Care

CMS unveiled a transformative step to test a state’s ability to improve the overall healthcare management of its state population. The States Advancing All-Payer Health Equity Approaches and Development Model (“AHEAD Model”) aims to better address chronic disease, behavioral health and other medical conditions. Under the AHEAD Model, participating states will be better equipped to promote health equity, increase access to primary care services, set healthcare expenditures on a more sustainable trajectory and lower healthcare costs for patients.
