Payment Models for Medical Homes

Two new issue briefs exploring ways to pay for medical home services were recently published by the Safety Net Medical Home Initiative, a Commonwealth Fund–supported demonstration project to help 65 community health centers in five states transform themselves into patient-centered medical homes. Paying for the Medical Home: Payment Models to Support Patient-Centered Medical Home Transformation in the Safety Net describes 10 models for medical home payment, as well as recommendations on how community health centers can prepare for payment methods that are not strictly fee-for-service. Health Reform and the Patient-Centered Medical Home: Policy Provisions and Expectations of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act provides an overview of the Affordable Care Act and looks at how that law supports safety net clinics to become patient-centered medical homes.
