Managed Primary Care Demonstration Project.
The Department shall establish and implement a Managed Primary Care Demonstration Project to provide primary care services that are focused on preventive rather than curative care to persons who reside in underserved communities that lack accessible health and medical services. The demonstration project shall operate for a 5-year period and provide supplemental services to medical assistance recipients. The Department shall contract with a health care organization through a competitive process that is capable of providing patient-centered, prevention-focused services, that may include, but are not limited to, the following:
(1) Patient navigators to manage patient care.
(2) Patient-tailored preventive health care plans.
(3) Administrative personal health care consultants
for home health maintenance between medical office visits.
(4) Clinical personal health care consultants for
telehealth (health information and advice) and wellness initiatives.
(5) A patient portal.
(6) An online virtual health hub that provides
patients with access to wellness, self-guided education, health seminars, a video library, and additional health and wellness resources.
(7) Community health and human services centers to
engage, educate, and empower patients to get involved in their own self-care.
(8) Mobile preventive health stations and kiosks to
bring services to underserved communities that are health or medical deserts.
(9) Call centers to interact with medical homes and
facilitate service offerings.
A request for proposals for the demonstration project shall be issued by December 31, 2022.
