Project Plan Template update

More than 200 people attended a June 20 webinar overview of how Accountable Communities of Health (ACHs) are planning their transformation projects in support of the five-year Demonstration. The webinar introduced an essential new document, the Project Plan Template.

The Project Plan Template provides regional ACHs with a blueprint for describing their chosen transformation projects. Approved Project Plans will demonstrate their regions’ readiness to transform how Washington’s Apple Health (Medicaid) clients will experience health care in the future. The draft document is available for public comment until June 30.
