Dear Mr. Helgerson:

This letter is to inform you that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approves changes to the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program Funding and Mechanics Protocol in the Special Terms and Conditions (STCs) for New York´s section 1115 Medicaid Redesign Team Demonstration (Project No. 11–W–00114/2).

Specifically, the changes reconcile an internal conflict within Attachment I that was identified following the completion of the project valuation process. In addition, the revised Attachment I includes a detailed desc1iption of the methodology for calculating performance payments.

We look forward to continuing to work with you and your staff on the demonstration. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your project officer, Deborah Steinbach at (410) 786–7404, or by e–mail at Deborah.Steinbach@cms.hhs.gov.
