A BUYER-SIDE MEDICAID INCUBATOR

In partnership with Acumen America, we are excited to announce the launch of the Medicaid Innovation Collaborative to accelerate public market efforts.

Connecting State Medicaid Offices, and Managed Care leadership with innovators solving systemic problems for vulnerable populations

Adaptation Health is a buyer-side incubator program developing and building thought leadership and value on behalf of State Medicaid programs and Managed Care Organizations. We match market need and Medicaid priorities against market-product fit. 

We work with Medicaid plans and State Medicaid Directors fostering innovation, de-risking ventures, cultivating reimbursement policy dialogue, and promoting effective deal flow and capital into Medicaid focused ventures.

Through a subsequent methodology of a national call for applications, a curated invitation process with input from Medicaid and safety-net leaders, diligent review (directly by subject matter experts), and an open and transparent Showcase event, meaningful solutions can decrease time to contract and drive value to Medicaid and safety-net programs as well as improve patient care and services.
