Medicaid Introduces New Technical Assistance Program

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has introduced a new technical assistance program called the Medicaid Innovation Accelerator Program (IAP). The IAP is designed to reduce costs to the Medicaid program and the general health system by supporting states in their efforts to accelerate reforms to new payment and service delivery.
