In October of 2014, PHA and the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) partnered to receive a 90/10 matching grant (for which Purdue pays the 10%) of $2.3M from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to extend quality reporting services to Medicaid-eligible EPs until 2017. An additional $4.39M continued the program until September of 2020 as well as expanded the service offerings. In November of 2018, $12M from CMS allowed PHA and the FSSA to continue to provide direct, technical assistance to the state’s Medicaid providers for another two years as well as to address several clinical challenges impacting long-term care and the opioids crisis.
