Maryland Primary Care Program
CURRENT MDPCP PRACTICES: Please refer to the CONNECT site for the most up-to-date program information.
The Maryland Primary Care Program (MDPCP) is designed to support the delivery of advanced primary care throughout the state to improve health outcomes, while controlling total health care spending growth.
The program presents an unprecedented opportunity to participate in care transformation for physicians, clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants with a variety of specialty designations, including: General Practice, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatric Medicine, Geriatric Medicine, and co-located Psychiatry.
Modeled after CMMI's national Comprehensive Primary Care Plus Model (CPC+), participating practices will receive additional prospective payments from Medicare to make transformative changes to the way they deliver care. Practices will also receive technical assistance and data supports to accelerate transformation.
The application period for practices, FQHCs, and CTOs to apply to participate beginning January 1, 2024 is now open and will run through Monday, July 17th at 11:59 PM. Please visit our Application Page for more details.

There are three prediction tools now available in the MDPCP reporting suite. The prediction tools include the Pre-AH, Pre-DC, and the Pre-HE models. The Hilltop Pre-AH Model™ generates the “Avoidable Hospitalizations (PreAH)” scores; the Hilltop Pre-DC Model™ generates the “Severe Diabetes Complications (Pre-DC)” scores, and the Hilltop Pre-HE Model™ generates the “Hospice/End of Life (PreHE)” scores. These risk scores are intended to help MDPCP-participating practices identify beneficiaries who have a high risk of incurring an avoidable hospitalization or emergency department (ED) event, a high risk of incurring a hospital event due to severe diabetes complications, or a high risk of experiencing all-cause mortality within the next six months. Using this information in conjunction with clinical judgment, providers can make informed decisions about allocating scarce care coordination resources, directing these resources to the individuals who will benefit from them the most.
