Webinar on CMS Innovation Funding
May 22, 2013

A webinar will be held May 28 from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center funding opportunity for the second round of Health Care Innovation Awards. CMS has allocated up to $1 billion for awards and evaluation of projects that test new payment and service delivery models to deliver better care and lower costs for Medicare, Medicaid, and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) enrollees. Eligible applicants include provider groups, health systems, payers and other private sector organizations, faith-based organizations, states, local governments, public-private partnerships and for-profit organizations that have developed innovations that will improve population health, quality of care, and total cost of care. CMS will accept letters of intent June 1 – June 28 and applications from June 14 – August 15. During the webinar, Innovation Center staff will provide an overview of the Health Care Innovation Awards Round Two and answer questions. Register for the webinar at the CMS web site. More information is available on the Health Care Innovation Awards web page.
