Financial Alignment Initiative Operation Support Contract.
The purpose of this project is to assist the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) with services to support the implementation of the Financial Alignment Initiative, a demonstration to test new approaches to providing integrated administrative, service delivery, and payment models for those individuals enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid. States may choose to participate in two different models under the demonstration: 1) capitated model, and 2) managed-fee-for service model (MFFS). Under the capitated model, CMS and the state enter into a three-way contract with selected health plans to provide integrated benefits to individuals dually enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid and health plans receive a capitation rate for the full continuum of benefits provided to enrollees. Under the MFFS model, states have the flexibility to develop innovative approaches to coordinate care for this population, building upon Medicaid health homes, primary care case management programs, or other models. States participating in the MFFS model are eligible for a retrospective performance payment based on federal savings and quality outcomes achieved by enrollees. Any intervention must ensure seamless integration and access to all necessary services through coordination across the Medicare and Medicaid programs. More
