PCMH Evaluation

CareFirst has engaged some of the nation's leading health researchers and economists to conduct independent evaluations of our Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) program. This section is designed to inform providers of the details of the evaluation and provide updates as they occur.

Additional information will be added throughout the course of the study and we encourage all PCMH providers to check back periodically for updates.
