PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island will receive up to $20 million in federal funding to improve health care quality, accessibility and affordability.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said it awarded Rhode Island the grant to test an innovate plan to implement and test health care payment and service delivery models. The department awarded more than $665 million to 28 states, three territories and Washington, D.C., as part of the Affordable Care Act.

Gov. Lincoln Chafee says the grant will help Rhode Island strengthen and bring positive change to its health care system.

The congressional delegation also applauded the funding.
