PCP and DHCP Groups Required to Complete New Enrollment Agreements

TO:  Primary Care Physicians (PCPs), Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), Rural Health Centers (RHCs), and Delivering Healthcare Professionals (DHCPs)

The end date for the Patient 1st Program is approaching, and providers will be required to have completed agreements with both Medicaid and the ACHN. Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) will no longer receive Patient 1st capitation payments beginning in October 2019. The ACHN program will be implemented on October 1, 2019, and providers will need to complete ACHN agreements as soon as possible and before July 1, 2019, to avoid any delay in receiving bonus and participation payments.
