Primary Care Health Home Initiative header

MO HealthNet's Primary Care Health Home (PCHH) initiative strives to provide intensive care coordination and care management as well as address social determinants of health for a medically complex population. One aspect of the program includes the implementation and evaluation of the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model as a means to achieve accessible, high quality primary care; demonstrate cost-effectiveness in order to validate and support the sustainability and spread of the model, and support primary care practices by increasing available resources and improving care coordination thus improving the quality of clinician work life and patient outcomes. There are currently more than 43 participating organizations with over 208 clinic sites that make up the MO HealthNet PCHH providers.

The PCHH initiative offers comprehensive care management services for Medicaid participants who have two or more chronic health conditions including anxiety, asthma, chronic pain, COPD, depression, developmental disabilities, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, substance use disorder, and tobacco use. The program also emphasizes the integration of primary care and behavioral health care in order to achieve improved health outcomes. This website provides information regarding the development and current status of Missouri’s Primary Care Health Homes. For more information regarding the Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH) Behavioral Health Homes, this can be accessed on the DMH website: CMHC (Behavioral) Healthcare Homes.
