Medicaid can play a significant role in strengthening the nation's primary care safety net by supporting innovative medical home and practice improvement initiatives. As an estimated 16 to 20 million individuals become Medicaid-eligible over the next decade, primary care providers will need assistance in delivering sustainable, high-quality care to this compl ex-need population.
