This brief reviews potential financing mechanisms to facilitate integration, with a particular focus on Medicaid. Drawing from interviews with experts across the country, it offers models ranging from one-time seed funding for pilot projects to blended or braided financing arrangements that support comprehensive integration. This brief focuses specifically on financing and payment offering a menu of options for states to create financial incentives for integration, particularly for Medicaid populations. It offers ideas for paying for health and social service integration, including examples of financing mechanisms and sources (where the money comes from) and payment methodologies (how the money is disbursed to providers).
