Health Homes

Background

The Affordable Care Act of 2010, Section 2703, created an optional Medicaid State Plan benefit to establish Health Homes to coordinate care for people with chronic conditions. CMS expects state Health Homes providers to operate under a "whole-person" philosophy. Health Homes providers integrate and coordinate all primary, acute, behavioral health, and long-term services and supports to treat the whole person.

Health Homes service providers must report quality measures to the state. States are also required to report utilization, expenditure and quality data for an interim survey and an independent evaluation.
