Health Home Performance & Payments – The High & The Low Remain Miles Apart

This year is the five-year anniversary of the implementation of the health home model in Missouri and Rhode Island – the states that were the earliest adopters. As these models hit the five-year mark, I think there are four key questions:

  1. How do you measure the success of the model?
  2. Do health homes actually work?
  3. What types of consumers are enrolled in health homes?
  4. Is there an “average” reimbursement rate for health home services?

The answer to each of these questions is like many elements in the U.S. health care system – it depends.
