Maine gets $33m federal grant for health care

AUGUSTA, Maine — The LePage administration on Friday hailed a $33 million federal grant to the state, saying it will advance its goals of creating a more transparent and efficient health care system that could save at least $1 billion.

The US Department of Health and Human Services grant will be used to test whether new payment and service models will produce superior results for patients and lower costs for health care providers. Maine was one of six states to receive the grant. Vermont is receiving $45 million from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
