Medicare Payment for Health Care Home Services
In August the ending of the MAPCP Demonstration with CMS was announced. We are providing some preliminary information on the care management codes that may be used. The CMS website has information relating to the use of the final rule and care management codes.
Minnesota was selected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to be one of eight states participating in the Medicare Multi-payer Advanced Primary Care Practice (MAPCP) demonstration Project. The demonstration added Medicare to Minnesota’s existing multi-payer health care home initiative as a payer for certified health care homes.
The Minnesota Departments of Health and Human Services jointly applied for the demonstration project, with guidance from a wide array of stakeholders. The demonstration began in 2011 and has now been extended until 12/31/2014. The current payment rates will remain in effect.
