    Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) initiatives are part of broader Section 1115 Waiver programs and provide states with significant funding that can be used to support hospitals and other providers in changing how they provide care to Medicaid beneficiaries.  While they originally were more narrowly focused on funding for safety net hospitals and often grew out of negotiations between states and HHS over the appropriate way to finance hospital care, they increasingly are being used to promote a far more sweeping set of payment and delivery system reforms. This brief examines similarities and difference across key elements of DSRIP waivers in six states – California, Texas, Kansas, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and New York.
