The Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) Person-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)

The Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) Person-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) program is based on the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home model of care.

Practices that implement the PCMH model provide person-centered, comprehensive, and coordinated care. Care is organized around the patient and led by a primary care provider who facilitates and coordinates a person’s healthcare needs with other healthcare professionals.

What makes Connecticut’s Person-Centered Medical Home Program Unique?

  • The program offers financial incentives for 18-24 months while the practice is on the Glide Path working towards NCQA PCMH recognition with a Community Practice Transformation Specialist (CPTS). This excludes FQHC practices
    • The incentives increase when the practice receives NCQA PCMH Recognition
  • The program offers no cost support and guidance from a CPTS to assist with initial recognition from NCQA or The Joint Commission, renewals, and further quality improvement
