Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program of New York State

DSRIP Background

"On April 14, 2014 Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that New York (the state of New York) has finalized terms and conditions with the federal government for a groundbreaking waiver that will allow the state to reinvest $8 billion in federal savings generated by Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) reforms.

The waiver amendment dollars will address critical issues throughout the state and allow for comprehensive reform through a Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program. The DSRIP program will promote community-level collaborations and focus on system reform, specifically a goal to achieve a 25 percent reduction in avoidable hospital use over five years. Safety net providers will be required to collaborate to implement innovative projects focusing on system transformation, clinical improvement and population health improvement. Single providers will be ineligible to apply. All DSRIP funds will be based on performance linked to achievement of project milestones.

The $8 billion reinvestment will be allocated in the following ways:

  • $500 Million for the Interim Access Assurance Fund – temporary, time limited funding to ensure current trusted and viable Medicaid safety net providers can fully participate in the DSRIP transformation without disruption
  • $6.42 Billion for Delivery System Reform Incentive Payments(DSRIP) – including DSRIP Planning Grants, DSRIP Provider Incentive Payments, and DSRIP Administrative costs
  • $1.08 Billion for other Medicaid Redesign purposes – this funding will support Health Home development, and investments in long term care, workforce and enhanced behavioral health services

In addition, the special terms and conditions also commit the state to comprehensive payment reform and continuing New York's effort to effectively manage its Medicaid program within the confines of the Medicaid Global Spending Cap."
