Payers across the country are acknowledging the value of PCMH care by providing PCMH practices with enhanced payment and other incentives. Many payers require a practice to become recognized as a medical home in order to be eligible for enhanced payment. There are several national and many state-based recognition and accreditation programs. The Safety Net Medical Home Initiative helped participating practices attain NCQA PCMH Recognition.
The Safety Net Medical Home Initiative also supported regional policy efforts and local PCMH payment pilots. Regional Coordinating Centers engaged stakeholders and worked with local and state-level policymakers to address policy barriers to PCMH transformation. To learn more about these pilots, see: PCMH Payment Resources from SNMHI Partners.
