Reducing Substance Use Disorders

As part of a strategy to improve the care and outcomes for individuals with a substance use disorder (SUD), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services invites states to leverage Innovation Accelerator Program (IAP) resources to introduce delivery system and payment reforms that better identify individuals with a SUD, expand coverage for effective SUD treatment, and enhance SUD practices delivered to beneficiaries. Based on feedback from states and partners, IAP designed a curriculum and technical support strategy that reflect the keystones of SUD program innovation, including the use of quality metrics and data analytics, benefit design and provider strategies, and value-based purchasing for SUD.
