DSRIP Project Plans

The state has made available funding to emerging Performing Provider Systems to develop comprehensive DSRIP Project Plans. To apply for these planning funds, the lead applicant from interested coalitions must submit a DSRIP Design Grant application to BVAPR@health.state.ny.us by June 26, 2014

How can I check if my organization was listed as a Partner with AHI’s Letter of Intent? How can I get my organization added to the updated Partner list that will be submitted with AHI’s Project Design Grant application?

Send an e-mail DSRIPahi@medserv.net with your request.  There are no restrictions on the Partner list at this time.  Any organization with an interest is welcome to take part in the planning process.  The initial Partner list that was submitted with AHI’s Letter of Intent is non-binding.  The updated Partner list that will be submitted with the Project Design Grant application (now due June 26th) is also non-binding.

The Performing Provider System Partner Template asks for a “Billing/Provider Entity ID”. How can I obtain this number?

Your billing department or billing agency should have the number.  If you are not able to locate it, DOH advises that you call 1-800-343-9000 to request the number.

The Performing Provider System Partner Template asks for a “Billing/Provider Entity ID”. What does this refer to?

This is also known as the “Entity ID”, it will start with the letter E and then follow with 7 digits ( Example: E0123456). Your billing department or billing agency should have your Medicaid “Entity ID”.  If not, DOH advises you to call Medicaid for the number. 

What region does the Adirondack Health Institute’s DSRIP Project Design Grant Application cover?

Many potential partners have asked to be included in the planning process.  Based on their service areas, the geography currently includes all or parts of the following counties:  Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Saratoga, St. Lawrence, Warren, and Washington.  The final project plan may have a slightly different service area.
