The notice below was received by PAAW leadership on September 10 regarding the Emergency Triage, Treat, and Transport (ET3) Model program.
All – I have been informed that legislative changes are being introduced that will allow for services to participate in the ET3 pilot program proposed by CMMI and CMS. Wisconsin agencies interested in applying for the ET3 pilot are encouraged to do so as soon as possible due to the deadline for applications being September 19, 2019 (nine days from now). We are very much aware of the short time frame for applying and encourage you to share this news with your agency, any partner organizations, stakeholders, and membership of your representational groups. We understand the CMMI and CMS may be releasing a “round two” and “round three” opportunity in the future but have no other details on that at this time. We will be pushing out updates on the legislative initiative as we receive them.
Specific information can be found on the ET3 Model main page, the ET3 Frequently Asked Questions page and the ET3 Model Eligibility Fact Sheet. There are additional resources listed on those pages.
