NYS DOH DSRIP ANNOUNCEMENTS
  
ATTENTION CBO PARTNERS: REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS
The New York State Department of Health, Office of Health Insurance Programs is issuing a Request for Applications (RFA) to announce the availability of funds to support strategic planning activities for Community Based Organizations to facilitate their engagement in DSRIP activities. CBOs are trusted stakeholders in their communities and may be able to impact the social determinants of health.  
 
This RFA is designed to provide funding to non-Medicaid billing Community Based Organizations who address the social determinants of health. This RFA is intended to solicit applications for grants to assist CBO Consortiums in planning activities to identify business requirements and formulate strategies for short-term needs as well as longer term plans that the CBO consortium may envision for sustainability in system transformation. Overall, this will allow them to better position themselves for continuing engagement with PPSs in DSRIP projects, and consequently, value based payment and contracting.

It is the NYS DOH Department's intent to award one award for each of the three regions outlined in the RFA. The three regions consist of New York City, Long Island and Mid-Hudson, and Rest of State.  A maximum funding amount for each region is $2,500,000.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE NY MEDICAID EHR INCENTIVE PROGRAM
The New York Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program provides financial incentives to eligible professionals and hospitals to promote the adoption and meaningful use of EHR technology. Providers who practice using EHRs are in the forefront of improving quality, reducing costs and addressing health disparities. Since December 2011, over $757 million incentive funds have been distributed within 23,104 payments to New York State Medicaid providers.
 
REMINDER: 2016 is the last year that eligible professionals may begin participating in the program, which means the following:
  • Providers must attest for payment year 2016 by March 31, 2017. (Note: the payment year officially ends December 31. Due to a 90-day grace period thereafter, the deadline is March 31, 2016.)
