HCA seeking partner for Integrated Care for Kids model

The Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) will issue a request for applications (RFA) seeking a partner organization to pursue a potential new care delivery model for children.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is planning to solicit applications for up to eight cooperative agreements that will implement the Integrated Care for Kids (InCK) Model of care. Each agreement will be up to $16 million total for a seven-year model period.

The InCK Model is a child- and family-centered local service delivery model for children with physical, behavioral, and other health-related needs like food insecurity and unstable housing. It incorporates a payment model that holds the state and local providers accountable for costs and outcomes.

Key participants in the InCK Model will be HCA and a local entity that will serve as a lead organization. CMS requires that this lead organization be HIPAA-covered.

Partners in this effort will be the Department of Health, Department of Social and Health Services, and Department of Children, Youth and Families.

The InCK Model will include a two-year pre-implementation period followed by a five-year implementation period.

HCA will send another notification when the RFA has been issued. To learn more about the funding opportunity, visit the CMS InCK Model webpage.
