ARPA 6.06 - Dollars to Digitize
The purpose of this project is to provide funding to behavioral health and home and community-based services (HCBS) providers to digitally transform their care delivery. The grant will distribute a total of $26 million of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to providers all around the state. Funding will include investments in upgrading or implementing electronic health record systems to be able to better coordinate care, access real-time information through health information exchanges, and the purchase of tools necessary for the delivery of virtual services. This project will leverage lessons and processes from the Department’s Electronic Health Record incentive program and the Office of eHealth Innovation’s telemedicine projects, with a focus on inclusive and equitable approaches and solutions. These funds will be provided through a competitive grant program that is aligned with other developing efforts, such as HB 21-1289, “Funding for Broadband Deployment.”
Who is Eligible: Medicaid-enrolled home and community-based services (HCBS) providers, Medicaid-enrolled behavioral health providers, and ‘outgoing’ Case Management Agencies (CMAs); not participating in the CMA redesign.
