New Hampshire Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Waiver Program

New Hampshire

“On January 5, 2016 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved New Hampshire's Section 1115 Research and Demonstration Transformation Waiver, #11-W-00301/1 to access new federal funding to help transform its behavioral health delivery system. The Transformation Waiver has four main targets:

  1. Deliver integrated physical and behavioral health care that better addresses the full range of individuals' needs
  2. Expand capacity to address emerging and ongoing behavioral health needs in an appropriate setting
  3. Reduce gaps in care during transitions across care settings by improving coordination across providers and linking patients with community supports.
  4. Move fifty percent of Medicaid reimbursement to alternative payment models by the end of the demonstration period”
