Thirty-two organizations, including hospitals, will receive funding to test promising approaches to linking Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries with community services to address their health-related social needs through the Accountable Health Communities Model, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced today. Twelve organizations will participate in the model’s Assistance Track, which will provide community navigation services for high-risk beneficiaries. The rest will participate in the model’s Alignment Track, which will provide navigation services and work to align community capacity with beneficiary needs. Both tracks will begin May 1 with a five-year performance period. For more on the three-track model, visit
