For last week’s MAPOC Consumer Access Committee meeting, DSS developed a clear and simple descriptionof Person Centered Medical Homes (PCMHs). The presentation focuses on what person-centered means – both provider and member responsibilities. Members learn what they can expect from providers, and what is expected of them. “Care is organized around you” balanced with “Support you in caring for yourself.” Medicaid’s PCMHs have been credited with significant improvements in health status, access to care, member satisfaction and cost control.”
