Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton counties have been added to the  Cincinnati-Dayton region  by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as one of seven geographic markets to carry out the CPC initiative.

Up to 75 practices will be selected within the region to participate—your practice could be one of them! Physicians in these practices will receive a monthly care management fee averaging $20 per month for each Medicare patient to support enhanced primary care services. This is in addition to traditional fee-for-service reimbursement. Ohio Medicaid and nine other private payers will also be participating in this blended payment model.
