12/15 at 6:00PM: Bringing Patient-Centered Medical Homes to Medicaid in Pennsylvania
Providing patients with “medical home” is a way to encourage primary care to be delivered in a way that’s patient-centered, comprehensive, coordinated, and accessible. Patient Centered Medical Homes can be used to improve the quality and safety of care while lowering the cost per patient. Through House Bill 1655, the Pennsylvania Legislature established the Patient-Centered Medical Home Advisory Council, which is wrapping up discussions about how to encourage greater use of medical homes in Medicaid.
