Single Source Procurement: Integrated Care for Kids (InCK) Model

Pursuant to New York State Finance Law § 163.10(b), The New York State Department of Health is presenting the following summary of relevant circumstances, and material and substantial reasons why a competitive procurement was not feasible. The New York State Department of Health Integrated Care for Kids (InCK) Model Program has made a determination to issue a Single Source Procurement to One eligible grantees to support ongoing currently funded projects.

The Department’s Office of Health Insurance Programs, the State’s Medicaid agency, acting as the Applicant, and Montefiore Medical Center, acting as the Lead Organization, have been awarded a CMS/CMMI Cooperative Agreement to plan and implement the InCK Model in the north-central Bronx. Bronx County is the nation’s poorest urban county and ranked last of NY’s 62 counties in health outcomes in 2019.

Through this award and consistent with the InCK model goals, the Department with its Lead Organization Montefiore, seeks to:

  1. Improve performance on priority measures of child health, including rates of substance and opioid use;
  2. Reduce avoidable inpatient hospitalizations and out-of-home placements resulting from issues such as family instability driven by substance use; and
  3. Create sustainable Alternative Payment Models (APMs).
