Find me on:

The Affordable Care Act was signed by President Obama in 2010. Since its implementation, a number of programs have been developed in an effort to strengthen Medicaid and Medicare by lowering costs and improving the quality of care for millions of Americans.

One such program is known as The Medicaid Incentives for Prevention of Chronic Diseases program, which is “a nationwide effort to test and evaluate the effectiveness of providing financial and non-financial incentives to Medicaid beneficiaries of all ages who participate in prevention programs and demonstrate changes in health risk and outcomes, including the adoption of healthy behaviors.” The initiatives or programs are outlined as needing to be “comprehensive, evidence-based, widely available, and easily accessible.” Grants are available by the State for programs that address at least one of the following prevention goals: ‘tobacco cessation, controlling or reducing weight, lowering cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, and avoiding the onset of diabetes or improving the management of the condition.”
