AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine has been awarded a $33 million federal grant designed to bring new efficiencies to state health care programs.
The grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will be used to test whether new payment and service models will produce superior results for patients and lower costs for health care delivery.
Maine is one of six states chosen to receive a grant from the government. Vermont is receiving $45 million from the DHHS' Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
