CT Balancing Incentive Payment Project


“The State of Connecticut’s Department of Social Services, Division of Health Services (DHS), with the Legislative and stakeholder support, seeks approval for application to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for participation in the Balancing Incentive Payment Program (BIP). The $72,780,505 enhanced federal medical assistance received will be used to expand community long-term services and supports (LTSS) and develop infrastructure necessary to support uniform access and a more streamlined process for persons seeking community LTSS. Ultimately, the goal of Connecticut’s BIP project is to remove policy, procedure and access barriers that prevent persons from receiving equitable community LTSS and that lead to unnecessary institutionalization.”
