MaineCare Health Homes Initiative: Extension of National Council on Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home (PHMH) Recognition Deadline & Re-opening of Practice Application for Participation

May 6, 2013

We are pleased to announce a deadline extension for NCQA PCMH recognition and the re-opening of the application process for primary care practices interested in participating in the MaineCare Health Homes initiative. This extension is an effort to include as many eligible primary care practices as possible in the Health Homes initiative.

The deadline for achieving full NCQA PCMH recognition for practices in the Health Homes initiative is extended to December 31, 2013. The application process for MaineCare Health Homes is now open. Practices will need to complete the online application by Fri, May 24, 2013. For practices with more than one location, a separate application must be completed for each location.

For more information about the Health Homes initiative, see MaineCare’s Health Homes webpage.

Additionally, Maine Quality Counts will be hosting a webinar for practices interested in becoming a MaineCare Health Home. This webinar will be held on Thursday, May 9th 2013 at 12:00 PM. You can register for this webinar online.

Questions about the MaineCare Health Homes initiative should be referred via email to Kitty Purington or to Lisa Letourneau.
