Detroit Medical Center to get $10 million award

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Medical Center has been selected to receive a $10 million award as part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Health Care Innovation Awards program.

The money will enable the DMC to test a primary care and preventative health model that reaches patients who use some of Detroit's busiest emergency departments.

In a news release Tuesday, the DMC says the Health Care Innovation Awards range from $2 million to $23.8 million over three years and are made possible by the Affordable Care Act.

Funding this year totaled about $360 million for 39 recipients in 27 states and the District of Columbia.
