What is Ohio CPC?
Ohio CPC is an investment in primary care infrastructure intended to support improved population health outcomes. CPC is a patient-centered medical home program, which is a team-based care delivery model led by a primary care practice that comprehensively manages a patient’s health needs.
The goal is to empower practices to deliver the best care possible to their patients, both improving quality of care and lowering costs. Most medical costs occur outside of a primary care practice, but primary care practitioners can guide many decisions that impact those broader costs, improving cost efficiency and care quality.
CPC practices may be eligible for two payment streams in addition to existing payment arrangements with the Ohio Department of Medicaid and the Medicaid Managed Care Plans:
- Per-member-per-month (PMPM) payment, to support activities required by the CPC program
- Shared savings payment, to reward practices for achieving total cost of care savings
Additionally, joining the CPC program gives practices access to data and reports that provide actionable, timely information needed to make better decisions about outreach, care, and referrals.
