Hawaii’s Healthcare Innovation Plan PRIMARY CARE PRACTICE REDESIGN Ensuring that at least 80 percent of Hawai‘i’s residents are enrolled in a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by 2017 and integrating behavioral healthcare into the primary care setting This is voluntary for providers, with the incentive being that all plans and payers have already agreed to reimburse providers who meet PCMH Level 1 criteria at a higher level than those who do not. Those who meet the criteria will get a higher fee-for-service rate and a PCMH payment. CARE COORDINATION Implementing programs for high-risk/high-need populations, including establishing Medicaid Medical Homes and Community Care Networks for high-risk Medicaid and commercial beneficiaries and initiating super-utilizer pilot programs.
Where the rubber meets the road... What are the regulations regarding PCMH in the ACA?
Two steps to federal regulations 1. Publish proposed and final rules in the Federal Register. All analyses must be done and all comments must be addressed. 2. Update the Code of Federal Regulations to reflect the new rule.
