The New York State Medicaid Redesign team (MRT) is redirecting Medicaid funds to projects that radically transform the Medicaid delivery system. These projects are part of the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program. DSRIP incentivizes healthcare and community-based providers to form regional collaborations and implement innovative system transformation to better serve Medicaid and uninsured populations who often experience greater healthcare disparities.
The overarching objective of DSRIP is to improve clinical outcomes and reduce avoidable ED use and hospital admissions by 25% over five years.
Up to $6.42 billion dollars are allocated to the NYS DSRIP program with payouts based upon achieving predefined results in system transformation, clinical management, and population health.
