Health Homes are an important component of Maine's Value-Based Purchasing strategy, a multi-pronged MaineCare initiative designed to improve the healthcare system, improve population health, and reduce cost. Health Homes are a partnership between an enhanced Health Home primary care practice and one of ten Community Care Teams (CCTs) around the state. Both organizations receive a per member, per month (PMPM) payment for Health Home services provided to MaineCare members who have two chronic conditions or one chronic condition and at risk for another. Health Home services include care coordination, case management, individual and family support, and health promotion/education.
Participation in Health Home services is entirely voluntary, and members can opt out of the service at any time.
Health Homes, including provider requirements, are further described in Section 91 of the MaineCare Benefits Manual.
