    Rhode Island requested to amend its section 1115 demonstration to launch a three-year pilot program that will evaluate the clinical and fiscal effectiveness of a non-invasive diagnostic and treatment program for brain-based disorders using Cortical Integrative Therapy (CIT). CIT is an approach for detecting and stabilizing abnormal structural and functional brain lesions resulting from acquired brain injury or developmental disabilities, as well identifying the competent stimulus to be an effective treatment for the patient without requiring medication or surgery. A limited number of beneficiaries with qualifying diagnosis will be able to request enrollment into the pilot. The federal public comment period will be open from October 9, 2015 through November 8, 2015.
  • Rhode Island Comprehensive Demonstration - Health System Transformation Program
    Rhode Island requested to amend its demonstration to pilot a new payment and delivery system model via its managed care program for a five-year period. The state requests to implement Accountable Entities that will be responsible for improving the quality of care, member experience and total cost of care for managed care organization enrollees. This new authority will be used to fund a health workforce development program with the local University and several colleges to train health profession graduates who will commit to work in Rhode Island, within the public sector that works directly with the Medicaid community. The federal public comment period will be open from June 10, 2016 through July 9, 2016.
