Rhode Island

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the State of Rhode Island to integrate care for Medicare-Medicaid enrollees to provide a more coordinated, person-centered care experience. The demonstration builds upon Rhode Island’s existing Integrated Care Initiative (ICI). The first phase focused on managing Medicaid long-term services and supports (LTSS) and improving the coordination of primary care, behavioral health services and home and community-based services. Phase One services are available for dually eligible beneficiaries, as well as Medicaid beneficiaries receiving LTSS. This second phase will be focused on moving to full financial integration of Medicaid and Medicare including integration of services for approximately 30,000 dually eligible individuals.
