Integrated Care for Kids (InCK) Model
(Effective April 2022)
The All Hands Health Network (AHHN), operated by Lurie Children’s, participates in the Integrated Care for Kids (InCK) Model. The InCK Model is a voluntary program designed by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare (CMS), to serve people enrolled in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
The goals of the InCK Model are to improve child health, reduce avoidable inpatient stays and out of home placement, and create sustainable Alternative Payment Models (APMs). To read more about the InCk Model, please visit https://innovation.cms.gov/. The key participants of the InCK Model are the state Medicaid agency, a local organization like Lurie Children’s All Hands Health Network, and the participant.
The program wants to address priority health needs, such as physical and behavioral health care, and food and housing support. To do that, AHHN staff and partners will connect you with community and social service programs in addition to the health services you get from your health care provider. To help make things easier for you, AHHN will coordinate your care and provide a team to manage your care when necessary.
