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.
