Ohio Medical Home Initiative Will Be Implemented Statewide Beginning In 2016

On January 14, 2016, the Ohio Office of Health Transformation (OHT) announced that the Ohio Medicaid program will implement a patient-centered medical home (PCMH) care delivery model statewide in 2016, two years ahead of schedule. The Medicaid PCMH initiative is part of an all-payer effort.

The initiative is targeted to include all consumers, whether they are enrolled in Medicaid, Medicare, or commercial health plans. While it is not mandatory that consumers select a PCMH as their primary care provider (PCP), the state's goal is that by 2020, all state residents will be enrolled in a PCMH.
