States with Medicaid Incentives for the Prevention of Chronic Diseases Model


Section 4108 of the ACA mandated the creation of the Medicaid Incentives for Prevention of Chronic Diseases (MIPCD) program for states to develop evidence-based prevention programs that provide incentives to Medicaid beneficiaries to participate in and complete. In 2011, 10 states were awarded grants to implement chronic disease prevention approaches for their Medicaid enrollees to test the use of incentives to encourage behavior change related to tobacco use, weight loss, and/or nutrition and heart health.

For more information on this initiative and the 10 states please visit the CMS map which provides detailed information.
