SIM

The State Innovation Models (SIM) initiative provides federal grants to states, under cooperative agreements, to design and test innovative, state-based multi-payer health care delivery and payment systems. The distinctive purpose of the SIM initiative is to test whether new models with potential to improve care and lower costs in Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP will produce better results when implemented in the context of a state-sponsored plan that involves multiple payers, broader state innovation, and larger health system transformation to improve population health.  [Source: http://kff.org/medicaid/fact-sheet/the-state-innovation-models-sim-program-an-overview/]
