Maryland Prim​ary Care Program

Practice Information

CURRENT MDPCP PRACTICES: Please refer to the CONNECT site for the most up-to-date program information.


The Maryland Primary Care Program (MDPCP) is des​igned 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 both practices and CTOs to apply to participate in the MDPCP for the 2021 Performance Year is now closed. Applicants that submitted applications in Summer 2020 will be notified of CMS' decision in Fall 2020. Interested applicants who wish to apply to participate in the 2022 performance year may do so during the open application period in Spring/Summer 2021. Please visit our Application Page for more details.
