The House Republicans, in their state budget proposal unveiled on April 25, eliminates funding for one of the major budget reform efforts of the Kasich administration – the Ohio Comprehensive Primary (Ohio CPC) Care program.
Ohio CPC launched in January 2017 to allow payment for value rather than volume for high preforming primary care practices across the state. Ohio CPC is a patient-centered medical home program, which is a team-based care delivery model lead by a primary care practice that comprehensively manages a patient’ health needs.
Select primary care practices began participating in the Ohio CPC effective January 1, 2017, with plans to roll the program out to practices statewide in January 2018.
The Ohio Academy of Family Physicians is working to have funding, which is primarily federal funding, put back into the budget.
