North Carolina among States Selected for CMS Demo Project

North Carolina is among eight states selected to participate in a demonstration project designed to “evaluate the effectiveness of doctors and other health care professionals across the care system working in a more integrated fashion and receiving more coordinated payment from Medicare, Medicaid, and private health plans.” Other states include Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Minnesota. The Multi-Payer Advanced Primary Care Practice Demonstration will ultimately include over 1,200 medical homes serving almost one million Medicare beneficiaries. The demonstration is one of several projects being undertaken by the newly established Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, created by the Affordable Care Act and part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
