DOH Posts List of Hopeful Health Homes

The Department of Health has posted the names of organizations submitting a letter of intent to become Medicaid "health homes" by November 1, 2011. The list is accessible from the DOH website page on Medicaid health homes. Several hundred organizations submitted applications; the DOH list is broken out by region and identifies the lead entity and partnering entities and agencies for each proposed health home.

From the DOH FAQ on health homes:

The health home model of service delivery expands on the traditional medical home model to build linkages to other community and social supports, and to enhance coordination of medical and behavioral health care, with the main focus on the needs of persons with multiple chronic illnesses.

More information is available at the FAQ page.
