CPAA calls for input on Medicaid Transformation Projects
The CPAA is calling for input on choosing its optional Medicaid Transformation Projects from the Health Care Authority's Medicaid Transformation Project Toolkit. The Project Toolkit provides details about the projects that will be eligible for funding under Initiative 1 of the Medicaid Transformation Demonstration. Initiative 1 focuses on transforming the Medicaid delivery system through the regional Accountable Communities of Health (ACHs).

The CPAA is asking its local communities to provide their top three optional project choices in the coming weeks. Individuals can also provide input by taking the CPAA's Project Toolkit Survey (adapted from Olympic ACH).
CPAA Council Elects Board Members
At the March 9 meeting, the CPAA Council held elections for the open governance board seats. The CPAA Board still has a remaining seat reserved for a Consumer representative or Medicaid Beneficiary, so if you know of someone who may be able to serve in that capacity, please reply to this email or contact Justin Wagaman at  Read more>>>
