BCBS of Michigan PCMH Fact Sheet

What is a patient-centered medical home?
A patient-centered medical home is a care team, led by a primary care physician, which focuses on each patient’s health goals and needs, and coordinates patient care across all settings. Patients receive the right care in the right setting, and physicians are compensated for the additional time and effort required to manage their patients’ care. 
What is the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan PCMH Program?
The Michigan Blues’ PCMH program is a two-part program developed with our physician partners. The first phase involves the difficult work of implementing PCMH features and tools to transform physician practices. Through financial support from the Blues’ Physician Group Incentive Program, physicians across the state are working toward PCMH designation by implementing various PCMH features into their practices. The second phase involves designation as a PCMH practice. The Michigan Blues currently have the nation’s largest network of designated medical home physicians, with more than 3,770 physicians in 1,243 medical practices across Michigan. Designation is reviewed annually.
