Colorado primary care practice teams are encouraged to apply for the Colorado State Innovation Model (SIM), a federally funded, governor’s office initiative that helps providers integrate behavioral and physical health and succeed in value-based payment models. SIM helps providers focus on delivering whole-person care that improves health outcomes, helps reduce or avoid healthcare costs and reinvigorates care teams.
The application for the third and final cohort will be open through Jan. 24 (an extended deadline). Practices that have started applications for SIM Cohort 3 by Friday, January 19 will have until Wednesday, January 24 at 11:59 p.m. to complete them. The SIM office recognizes that practices have multiple deadlines looming and this extension to complete applications in progress is intended to lessen some of the pressure on them.
