An Overview of Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Waivers
- The original waiver included $70 million for planning grants. However, only $20 million of that was used and it is unsure how the remaining $50 million will be used.
In addition to the DSRIP funds, New York created a new pool ($500 million) to support safety-net providers that serve significant numbers of Medicaid beneficiaries and demonstrate financial hardship through losses or low margins. The Interim Access Assurance Fund (IAAF) is intended to ensure that Medicaid beneficiaries have adequate access to care in these affected facilities until December 31, 2014, when DSRIP projects are expected to launch.
New York is not redirecting supplemental payments.
