MO HealthNet Primary Care Health Home Initiative
MO HealthNet is continuing with its Primary Care Health Home Initiative. The Initiative is being undertaken to:
- continue to implement and evaluate the Patient Centered Medical Health Home (PCHH) model as a means to achieve accessible, high quality primary care;
- demonstrate cost-effectiveness in order to justify and support the sustainability and spread of the model, and
- support primary care practices by increasing available resources and improving care are coordination thus improving the quality of clinician work life and patient outcomes.
The Missouri Department of Social Services (DSS) currently has 24 providers participating in this Initiative and seeks additional Primary care Practice Sites comprised of licensed physicians, collaborating with other licensed health care professionals including nurse practitioners and physician assistants, to serve as Health Homes for MO HealthNet eligible participants. All applications must be submitted by May 1, 2014.
