State to Receive Funds for Health Care

Michigan will get $70 million in federal funds over the next four years for innovative health care program improvements that help families. The money from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will support the state’s Blueprint for Health Innovation that seeks better coordination of care, lower costs as well as better health outcomes. The Blueprint is the final piece of Michigan’s health innovation model which is working towards cutting costs and improving overall coordination of care, accountability and providing a link between behavioral health and long-term care. The Blueprint is also connected to the state’s pilot program to coordinate care between recipients of both Medicare and Medicaid that will begin in 2015.
