CMS Selects SD Department of Social Services for CHART Model

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will award up to $20 million to entities in four states to improve health care in rural areas.

The funding will be awarded through the Community Transformation Track under the Community Health Access and Rural Transformation (CHART) Model. The CHART Model is intended to address disparities in health equity by improving access to quality health care and the sustainability of the health care system in rural communities. These funds will help test whether providing upfront funding, an innovative value-based payment, and operational flexibility can maintain or improve care quality and lower costs.

CMS is awarding up to $5 million in cooperative agreement funding to each of the following entities:

  •  University of Alabama Birmingham
  •  South Dakota Department of Social Services
  •  Texas Health and Human Services Commission
  •  Washington State Healthcare Authority

For more information, see the CHART Model webpage or contact the model team at CHARTModel@cms.hhs.gov.
