Medicaid programs that are considering emerging health homes opportunities are faced with a variety of decisions in how to design new programs within the existing infrastructure of the state’s publicly financed care delivery system. This technical assistance brief outlines key considerations to help states determine whether to invest in health homes and how to get started in doing so.

This resource was developed by the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) for the Health Home Information Resource Center, made possible by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The Health Home Information Resource Center helps states develop health home models of care for high-need, high-cost Medicaid beneficiaries. Technical assistance is coordinated by Mathematica Policy Research and CHCS.
