Partnering with Federally Qualified Health Centers, Rural Health Clinics, free clinics and other  primary care safety net providers serving the uninsured, hospitals can collaboratively build or expand models to improve health care value in South Carolina.

Through Proviso 33.34, funding is provided to develop local partnerships focusing our expertise on South Carolinians who are uninsured, chronically ill and over-utilizing hospital emergency rooms.

Providers have the opportunity to submit models based on their ideas and best practices to improve the coordination of care for this at-risk population; lower health care costs and facilitate the development of a high-performing and  replicable system of care.

Healthy Outcomes Plan submission forms are due by 5 p.m. EST this Friday, August 30. You may email forms to or mail them to the attention of Healthy Outcomes Plan, SCDHHS, 1801 Main Street, Columbia, SC, 29201.
