  •       Outlines the PCP’s responsibilities including:

                  Hospital coverage

                  EPSDT coverage

                 24/7 Voice-to-Voice coverage; similar to the requirements found in the current Patient 1st agreement

The PCP Group Enrollment Agreement MUST be received on or before July 1, 2019

 to ensure there is no delay in receiving bonus and participation payments.

The following provider types are eligible to participate with ACHN as a PCP:

·         Family Practitioners

·         General Practitioners

·         Pediatricians

·         Internal Medicine

·         OB/GYNs

·         Any provider listed above within a group may also be eligible to be a PCP group
