• State Innovation Model (SIM)

    The State Innovation Model (SIM) focuses on the development and testing of multi-payer health care payment and service delivery models in order to achieve better care coordination, lower costs, and improved health outcomes for Michiganders. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is implementing this initiative based upon the Blueprint for Health Innovation, which is a strategic plan that was developed in partnership with Michigan stakeholders. MDHHS has received a $70 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to develop and test the models that were outlined in the Blueprint for Health Innovation over the next four years. MDHHS will work with community partners and stakeholders to develop and test these models in the following five pilot region in Michigan: Jackson County; Muskegon County; Genesee County; Northern Region; and the Washtenaw and Livingston counties area.
