State Innovation Models (SIM)

On May 22, 2014, CMMI released a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to support the implementation of the State Health Innovation Plan through "State Innovation Models: Round Two Funding for Design and Test Assistance." New York submitted an application for Round Two Model Test funding on July 18, 2014. On December 16, 2014, New York received notification that it had received a Round Two Model Test award from CMMI. New York's successful application would not have been possible without the input and guidance of numerous stakeholders.

New York looks forward to the continued support and input of stakeholders as we move to implement the Plan.

Please continue to visit this page and the Stakeholder Engagement and Updates page for more information as it becomes available.

New York's SIM Operational Plan was submitted to CMMI in December 2015.

Model Testing

The purpose of the SIM initiative is to test the ability of state governments to use regulatory and policy levers to accelerate transformation; state government led innovation with broad stakeholder input and engagement, including multi-payer models, will accelerate delivery system transformation to provide better care at lower cost.

Under this round of Model Testing awards, CMMI has awarded 11 model test awards, ranging from $20 million to $99.9 million per state over 48 months. For more information on the Round Two awardees, visit CMMI’s website here.

The proposal requirements and materials associated with this FOA can also be accessed on CMMI's SIM webpage. The State received over 30 letters of support from community stakeholders which were submitted with the application.

We will continue to update this website on the state’s progress in implementing the SIM initiative. For current updates and materials, please visit the Stakeholder Engagement and Updates page.
