Rhode Island Expands Efforts to Promote Patient-Centered Medical Homes

Rhode Island has announced it is expanding its Chronic Care Sustainability Initiative that promotes the use of patient-centered medical homes across the state, according to a National Public Radio report.

There are currently 36 primary care practices participating in the CCSI, and 20 more practices are joining this year. Through the expansion, 300,000 Rhode Island patients will have access to patient-centered medical homes, according to the report.

As an incentive, those Rhode Islanders who choose to receive care at patient-centered medical homes will be offered a health insurance plan from the state's health insurance exchange that has lower co-pays, according to the report.
