Primary care is an essential, and today largely undervalued, foundation of the U.S. health care system. That may be especially true in Medicaid where beneficiaries— disproportionately high-need, children, pregnant women, and people of color—require robust primary care but are often underserved.  

PCC reviewed existing evidence and emerging practices to identify the most effective payment and care delivery strategies for strengthening primary care in Medicaid.  Note: these strategies are not in prioritized order.

Executive Summary

The Executive Summary provides an overview of the report. This concise document can be found on pages 1 through 6 of the full report and summarizes the qualitative and quantitative findings.

Executive Summary



The report suggests that to realize the aim of accessible, advanced primary care in Medicaid, what’s needed is not a single “silver bullet” innovation. Rather, the country needs broad, vocal, and ongoing support for an agreed upon set of policies that strengthen primary care. These policies must be pursued systematically and with sustained, sufficient investment, transparent reporting, and ways to track progress overtime with accountability.
