participation in the State of Minnesota’s Integrated Health Partnerships (IHP) allows
us to expand our promising care models while being financially rewarded through
the IHP’s shared savings arrangements for improving health and reducing costs
for those we serve.
The IHP is part
of the larger health care reform work being carried out by the Minnesota
Department of Human Services, the state Medicaid agency. The goal of the IHP
demonstration is to improve the quality and value of the care provided to the
citizens served by MN public health care programs.
For Courage Kenny patients and
clients, the IHP will include disability-competent primary care and specialty
services; high-touch care management; creative engagement strategies; and a
blend of clinical, community, and in-home services.
Rehabilitation Institute will continue to advocate that care models move away
from fee-for-service toward payment for outcomes and management of a total
budget that includes all the services our clients need to remain healthy and
