FIDA Model

On August 26, 2013, CMS announced that the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) will partner with CMS to test a new model for providing Medicare-Medicaid enrollees with a more coordinated, person-centered care experience.

Under the demonstration, also called Fully Integrated Duals Advantage (FIDA), New York and CMS will contract with health plans to coordinate the delivery of and be accountable for all covered Medicare and Medicaid services for participating Medicare-Medicaid enrollees. As of December 2014, approximately 78,000 individuals were eligible for passive enrollment into the FIDA Demonstration.
