The city of New Haven is being represented by Clifford Beers as 1 of 7 organizations awarded the Integrated Care for Kids (InCK) Model funding for this 7-year initiative.
CT InCK is a child-centered local service delivery and state payment model that aims to reduce expenditures and improve the quality of care for children through prevention, early identification, and treatment of behavioral and physical health needs. Eligible families include children under 21 years of age covered by HUSKY Health and pregnant and postpartum women covered by HUSKY Health. The model will empower states and local providers to better address these needs, as well as the impact of opioid addiction through care integration across all types of healthcare providers.
CT InCK is working towards connecting the dots with other initiatives at the local and state level to:
- align efforts,
- remove silos,
- improve health outcomes for families,
- remove gaps in services,
- promote health equity, and
- allow for reimbursement for care coordination across care providers.
Our hope is to provide an affordable, sustainable, and equitable healthcare initiative that is scalable across the state of Connecticut.
