DSRIP Statewide Investments
The League was awarded a contract by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) in 2018 to develop and implement seven community health workforce initiatives as part of MassHealth's $1.8 billion Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program. The statewide investments to support workforce initiatives total $115 million, a large portion of which will be allocated over five years to expand loan repayment, residency training, and clinical learning and leadership opportunities for community-based primary care and behavioral health clinicians. A program of technical assistance to strengthen health center readiness for accountable care is also included. The League is working closely with the Association for Behavioral Healthcare (ABH) to administer the behavioral health components of these programs.
These investments to grow statewide capacity across the community-based primary care and behavioral health workforce are intended to support MassHealth's broader restructuring efforts to increase quality and lower the total cost of care for members. For this reason, only those organizations currently participating in MassHealth payment reform initiatives are eligible to apply.
