Application Process Now Open for the Guiding an Improved Dementia Experience (GUIDE) Model

The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) has released guidelines and opened the application process for the Guiding an Improved Dementia Experience (GUIDE) model. This model will test a value-based reimbursement system for participating providers and will include a dementia care navigator for the patients of those providers. The Request for Applications (RFA) (PDF) provides further information on eligibility requirements and additional details.

Qualifying clinics can submit their applications via the CMMI web portal by the deadline of Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at 11:59 PM EST.

The Alzheimer’s Association can assist in assessing different approaches to meet the requirements. If there are areas in the RFA that don’t apply to your system, their health systems team can help your team talk through the requirements, challenges, and workflow.

On August 16, 2023, the Alzheimer’s Association released an article titled “Streamlining Today’s Complicated Health Care Maze for People with Dementia, Caregivers.” This article outlines the efforts being made by the Alzheimer’s Association and the Alzheimer’s Impact Movement (AIM) to improve dementia care for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and their caregivers. The article also provides detailed information that led to the introduction of the Comprehensive Care for Alzheimer’s Act (H.R. 1637 / S 626) in the 117th and 118th Congresses.
