In January 2018, the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved renewal of the Texas Healthcare Transformation and Quality Improvement Program, commonly referred to as the 1115 Medicaid Waiver. As part of the renewal, the Delivery Reform Incentive Payment Program (DSRIP) has transitioned from a program focused on project-level reporting and outcomes to a program that is now focused on activities at the provider-system level with more emphasis placed on improvement of system and regional level health outcomes to address community needs. As a result of this DSRIP transition, new rules and protocols have been developed for demonstration years 7-10 (DY7-10), and all regional healthcare partnerships are required to submit regional plans to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and CMS.

The plan update process included every DSRIP provider completing a provider plan template. Every Anchor Team has also completed a template that documents participation by those providers only receiving uncompensated care funds in the region, as well as outlines the process for updating community needs, updating learning collaborative plans and engaging stakeholders.

The public comment period for the RHP 17 Plan Update is now closed. The final draft of the RHP 17 Plan Update for DY9-10 was submitted to HHSC on November 22, 2019. 

Collectively, all the documents linked below represent the comprehensive RHP 17 Plan Update for DY9-10.
