Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) Program

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.

What is Ohio CPC for Kids?

Practices enrolled in Ohio’s CPC program that serve Medicaid children under age 21 may also be eligible to participate in CPC for Kids. CPC for Kids is a pediatric-focused component of CPC that provides additional per-member per-month payments and opportunities for quality add-on payments in exchange for performance on additional metrics related to lead testing and immunizations, as well as additional pediatric-focused activities. A brief summary of the CPC for Kids can be found here.

Payment for CPC practices may include two types of payment: (1) per-member-per-month (PMPM) payments and (2) shared savings payments. All CPC practices are eligible for PMPM payments, and some may be eligible for shared savings payments. PMPM payments and shared savings payments are distributed to CPC practices directly by ODM and the Medicaid managed care plans. Details on the definition and methodology for these two payment streams are provided below, as well as some key definitions used in both methodologies.

There are three types of requirements that practices must meet in order to receive payments through the CPC program: activity requirements, clinical quality metrics, and efficiency metrics. Practices must meet all activity requirements, 50% of applicable quality metrics, and 50% of applicable efficiency metrics in order to be eligible for payment.

Definitions and specifications all requirements are found below. Specifications include numerator and denominator requirements, exclusions, and time frame. Detailed codesheets, which outline the specific codes included in each metric, will be available to practices who are enrolled in the CPC program.

The performance period and reporting for Ohio CPC begins in January after the provider enrolls in the program. Providers receive quarterly progress reports and annual performance reports.
