Today, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced its fifth round of funding for 20 additional participants in the Community-based Care Transitions Program (CCTP). Authorized by the Affordable Care Act, the CCTP provides funding to test models for improving care transitions for Medicare patients at high risk for readmission by using services to manage patients’ transitions effectively.

With the addition of these 20 sites announced today, the CCTP will provide care transition services to nearly 700,000 Medicare beneficiaries in 40 states across the country. This new batch of grants brings the total number of sites to 102.
