CMS’ Accountable Health Communities Model Selects 31 Participants To Serve As ‘Hub’

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid has named 32 participants to serve as local “hubs’ linking clinical and community services under its Accountable Health Communities model.

Twelve organizations will participate in an Assistance Track, helping high-risk Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries navigate and access community services. In addition to the navigation service, the 20 organizations in an Alignment Track will encourage community-level partnerships to ensure that targeted services are available and responsive to patients needs.

The 30 organizations are spread across 193 counties in 23 states, both urban and rural, and include hospitals, universities, health departments and other local organizations.
