Health Homes for Members with Chronic Conditions (Stage A)

Health Home Information and Background

Important Announcements

Stage A Health Home Year One Report:

The Department is pleased to release its "MaineCare Stage A Health Homes Year 1 Report: Implementation Findings and Baseline Analysis." The Department created and launched the first stage of its Health Homes initiative for members with chronic conditions in January 2013.  Health Homes are a foundational component of the Department's Value-Based Purchasing Strategy and Maine's State Innovation Model (SIM) grant.

Building off the Maine multi-payer Patient Centered Medical Home model, the Department provides monthly reimbursement to primary care practices to support MaineCare members with chronic conditions through outreach, preventive health, care coordination, patient and family engagement. The Initiative also enables Community Care Teams across the state to partner with these Health Home practices to provide intensive care management and community supports to the highest need patients at the practices.

The Department commissioned the Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine to produce this report.
