Information on the State’s Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program

What is DSRIP?
MMNY has been talking about DSRIP and working on various aspects, particularly related to what the impacts will be on people and their access to services.  But what is it?  The DSRIP program is part of an agreement between the federal government and New York State to improve health care services and the health of New Yorkers overall.  For DSRIP, health care providers are required to come together in newly-formed networks, called Performing Provider Systems (PPS).  Most of the PPSs are led by hospitals, and all are comprised of hospitals, community-based providers (like community health centers), specialty care providers, and community based organizations.  The PPSs will be starting new projects to reach the goals of DSRIP, and the money they receive will be based on reaching good outcomes.

Opt Out Mailing Fact Sheet
New York State will soon be sending a mailing to everyone in the Medicaid program to give them the opportunity to opt out of medical information sharing for the purposes of DSRIP.  Here is a fact sheet that describes the mailing and what it means.  Many thanks to the MMNY DSRIP Workgroup and, in particular, Anthony Feliciano of the Commission on the Public’s Health System, Latisha Gibbs of Health People, Inc., and Judy Wessler, for working on this fact sheet!

The fact sheet is now available in multiple languages.  Click here for versions in Spanish, Russian, Haitian-Creole, Arabic, Chinese and Korean.
