Public health agencies have access to a funding stream  administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which goes by several names, including “CMS 90-10 Matching Funding Program,” the “HITECH/HIE Federal Financial Participation program,” or simply “the 90-10 funding program.” Under this program, CMS will pay 90% of approved costs for approved activities if the 10% match comes from non-federal funds.

The purpose of this guidance is to unravel some of that complexity and to prepare you with the information you need to make an informed, credible and effective overture to your Medicaid program about applying for these funds.
