Pilot Outcomes: There will be an evaluation of the pilot for these outcomes:

  4. Measure patient satisfaction
  5. Measure practice satisfaction

PDF Practice Core Competencies and Standards: Practices participating in the pilot will demonstrate five core competencies and will be expected to meet specific standards to be recognized as a medical home.

PDF Payment Methodology: Practices participating in the pilot will be reimbursed for all allowable Medicaid services and receive an initial per-member-per-month (PMPM) payment. The PMPM will be increased once the practice has met Tier 1 Minimum Standards. Practices will have the option to meet Tier 2 Advanced Standards to receive an enhanced fee-for-service on selected procedure codes.

Pilot Practice Selection Process: The Department published a Request for Information soliciting interested practices. These practices were selected to participate in the pilot:

Kearney Clinic, P.C., Kearney
    KHAS-TV News Report
Plum Creek Medical Group, P.C., Lexington

CMS Authority: Nebraska submitted a PDF Medicaid State Plan Amendment to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) for authority to implement the medical home pilot. This was approved effective 2-1-11.
