The Task Force hosted part one in our “Advancing Value Through Transformation” webinar series examining the Medicaid Delivery System Reform Incentive Program (DSRIP) waiver program in the context of evolving state-level delivery system reform innovations.
By accelerating change at the state level, leaders can innovate to deliver new models and benefits that support those most in need of care – Medicaid beneficiaries – and can act as incubators for federal change.
The pandemic has accelerated trends moving the delivery of care into the home or community. Yet, care at home largely remains the province of better resourced individuals, due to limited funding by government programs. Medicaid, the federal/state program of health care for people of lower income, has the potential to address these equity issues through waivers or plan amendments.
