Minnesota's State Innovation Model initiative launches website
DHS and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) recently launched a new State Innovation Model (SIM) Minnesota website at mn.gov/sim. In February 2013 the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation awarded Minnesota a $45 million SIM testing grant to be implemented during a three-year period ending October 2016. The goal is to help Minnesota providers and communities work together to create healthier futures for Minnesotans. Minnesota will use the grant money to test new ways of delivering and paying for health care using the Minnesota Accountable Health Model. Minnesotaís SIM initiative is a joint effort between the departments of Human Services and Health with support from Gov. Mark Daytonís office.
