The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (the Department) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have partnered to implement a new program to integrate care for Medicare patients who also have Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program).
It is called the Accountable Care Collaborative: Medicare-Medicaid Program (ACC: MMP). The program helps Medicare and Health First Colorado work together, making it easier for your patients to get the services, care coordination and support they need.
In the ACC: MMP, patients keep their full benefits and the freedom to choose their own provider. A Primary Care Provider (PCP) serves as a medical home that leads the patient’s health care team, connecting patients to appropriate health care services and tracking their progress and outcomes.
Patients and their PCPs belong to a Regional Accountable Entity (RAE) medical and non-medical service providers to help ACC: MMP patients get what they need to be healthy. RAEs also work with PCPs to coordinate the care of patients with complex health needs.
Care Coordinators help patients find the right health care, learn self-care and find non-medical services like housing, food and fuel assistance. There are seven RAEs in the state.
RAEs also assist providers, including:
