MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The National Governors Association says Alabama, Nevada and Washington will participate in a year-long project to examine ways to spur changes in how states pay for Medicaid and other health care services.

The NGA says the project should help the states reach agreements with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for changes in the delivery and payment of health care and in the improvement of health outcomes.

Alabama is trying to change its Medicaid program from a fee-for-service model to managed care through regional care organizations. Bentley says the regional care organizations should provide better care at less cost.

Officials from Alabama, Nevada and Washington will work with experts from the NGA and other national experts during the project.
