The primary aim is to demonstrate a model of service delivery and payment that can reduce morbidity and death from chronic illnesses and reduce costs associated with its complications, using chronic HCV infection as a case study. Project INSPIRE NYC will use an integrated medical and behavioral health service model with a bundled and capitated payment system developed with participating managed care organizations (MCOs). It will create real value by standardizing and improving patient-focused care, while working toward a payment model that facilitates positive outcomes and cost efficiency.
