Summary of CMMI Accountable Health Communities Model

This document provides information on the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation's (CMMI's) three-track Accountable Health Communities Model designed to test whether or not integrating social supports into the delivery system will have a positive impact on health outcomes and expenditures.
