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. Minnesota’s SIM initiative is a joint effort between the departments of Human Services and Health with support from Gov. Mark Dayton’s office.

Minnesotans in need of health care, nutrition assistance, child care assistance and emergency assistance can apply online through ApplyMN, applymn.dhs.mn.gov. This site allows Minnesotans for the first time to fill out a single application online for a majority of public assistance programs.
Self-sufficiency and health care statistics report is online
The Family Self Sufficiency and Health Care Program Statistics available through April 2016 (PDF) is available on the DHS public website. The report includes caseload numbers and expenditures for cash, emergency and food assistance programs and health care programs.
