About SIM

Between 2015 and 2019, the State of Colorado will receive up to $65 million from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to implement and test its State Health Care Innovation Plan.

Colorado’s plan, entitled “The Colorado Framework,” creates a system of clinic-based and public health supports to spur innovation. The state will improve the health of Coloradans by: (1) providing access to integrated primary care and behavioral health services in coordinated community systems; (2) applying value-based payment structures; (3) expanding information technology efforts, including telehealth; and (4) finalizing a statewide plan to improve population health. Funding will assist Colorado in integrating physical and behavioral health care in more than 400 primary care practices and community mental health centers comprised of approximately 1,600 primary care providers. In addition, the state will work to establish a partnership between their public health, behavioral health and primary care sectors.
