Ohio is preparing to launch the second component of its cross-payer health system reform project, a statewide patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model, in 2016. By December 2018, the Ohio Office of Health Transformation (OHT) anticipates that at least 80% of the state’s 11.5 million population across all payers including Medicaid, will be participating in a PCMH for primary care services.
