The Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program is a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) five-year (2017 to 2021) payment and care delivery model. Over 440 primary care practices in Michigan were selected to participate in the program. As per CMS, no additional practices will be added to the demonstration. CMS maintains a portal for practice reporting and a national CPC+Connect site for users authorized by CMS within CPC+ practices.
High Intensity Care Model is a program designed to help the most complex BCBSM Medicare Advantage PPO patients manage their health conditions, coordinate their health care, and achieve optimal health. Services include, care management, in-home assessment by an RN and SW, as well as other support services delivered face-to-face, often in the patient’s home, and over the telephone by a trained team of interdisciplinary health care professionals who work collaboratively with the patient, the patient’s family, and the patient’s primary physician. These professionals deliver HICM services that address patients’ medical, behavioral, and psychosocial needs. Integrating care management into the clinical practice setting is a key component of the patient centered medical home care model fostered by BCBSM in its efforts to transform Michigan’s health care delivery.
