This toolkit from the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) is designed to help state Medicaid agencies leverage their managed care purchasing authority to advance primary care innovation. The content is based on the experience of states participating in CHCS’ Advancing Primary Care Innovation in Medicaid Managed Care learning collaborative, and outlines design considerations and shares sample contract and procurement language within four key areas:
- Identifying and addressing social needs
- Integrating behavioral healthcare
- Enhancing team-based care
- Using technology to improve access
In addition, a “State approaches to patient-centered medical homes” section compares how three leading states — New York, Ohio, and Oregon — are leveraging managed care and specific payment methods to reimburse for patient-centered medical homes.
