MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University is getting a nearly $2 million grant to help improve health care statewide.

The university’s public health school will use the award to coordinate health care planning activities across the state in partnership with West Virginia officials.

The Charleston Daily Mail reports (https://bit.ly/1zYe5PU ) that the initiative is supported by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Technical and financial support is being made available to states that design and test innovative payment and service delivery models aimed at improving health care and lowering costs for Medicare, Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program recipients.

Officials say the goal will be to work with health care consumers, providers, payers and other agencies to develop innovative approaches to improve the quality of health care and control cost in West Virginia.
