Idaho Health Home Program

Medicaid will soon enhance its primary care case management system by integrating a full patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model of care. This is one of many efforts occurring across the nation to implement the PCMH model to improve clinical quality, enhance patients’ experience, and reduce overall healthcare costs.

Latest News


The Health Home State Plan Amendment was approved by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services. The Health Home program will begin Jan. 1, 2013. Interested clinics should begin enrollment as soon as possible.

Features of Care

In the Medicaid Health Home, each patient’s specific health needs are at the very center of care, which features:

  • Enhanced access to a clinical care team
  • Care that is comprehensive and well-coordinated between medical specialists, pharmacy services, other specialty services, and patients
  • Care that is evidence-based (effectiveness of a technique or strategy has been demonstrated in research findings)
  • Clinicians using decision support tools, measuring outcomes, and conducting quality improvement activities to meet patients' needs

All Healthy Connections providers who agree to meet the requirements of becoming a Health Home are eligible to participate. Practices will receive a per-member-per-month payment of $15.50 from Medicaid for eligible Medicaid participants to facilitate implementation of the requirements.
