The Accountable Health Communities (AHC) model addresses a gap in the current delivery system by funding interventions that connect community-dwelling beneficiaries with community services.
The AHC model will test three community-focused interventions of varying intensity and their ability to
impact total health care costs and inpatient and outpatient health care utilization.
This model will engage community-dwelling Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries of all ages (children and adults).
CMS will award, through a competitive process, renewable one-year cooperative agreements to successful applicants (award recipients).
