Medicaid Initiatives To Support Medical Homes

Medicaid Initiatives To Support Medical Homes Wednesday, July 2, 2014

March 2014 report from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) estimates there are 64.6 million individuals enrolled in Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) across the 49 States that provided enrollment data for March 2014. To improve the quality of care for this population while reducing costs, several States are developing new payment models that support medical homes in providing coordinated and integrated care.

The featured policy Innovations describe three State programs that reimburse medical homes for delivering high-quality, coordinated care to Medicaid beneficiaries, improving outcomes and lowering costs.

The featured QualityTools include a collection of patient management tools to enhance patient conversations with health care professionals, an operational handbook for safety net medical homes, and a library of publicly available resources and tools to help safety net providers understand and implement the patient-centered medical home model of care.
