On October 28, 2008, CMS is hosting a Special Open Door Forum for physicians on the Medicare Medical Home Demonstration (MMHD) project. The Medical Home program is a three-year demonstration to provide coordination of services for certain Medicare beneficiaries with chronic or prolonged illnesses through a personal physician. Outreach and recruitment of eligible practices is expected to begin in January 2009, and monthly medical home fee payments will begin in January 2010. On the call, CMS will present background information, define the core capabilities required to qualify as a Medical Home, and discuss the monthly Medical Home fee amounts. The call will take place from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM EDT; to participate, dial 1-800-837-1935, and reference conference ID number 65752061.
