Bethesda, MD, August 28, 2018 – The Maryland Department of Health (MDH), along with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) selected Management Solutions, LLC (MSLLC), as a Care Transformation Organization (CTO) for the Maryland Primary Care Program on Aug. 1, 2018.
The Maryland Primary Care Program is open to all qualifying primary care providers throughout the state of Maryland. It is a voluntary program that provides support and funding for advanced primary care. CTOs are organizations that provide care management teams qualified to deliver care coordination services to Participant Practices.
CTOs will provide support Maryland Primary Care Practices via care management personnel, infrastructure, and technical assistance. Providers are not required to contract with and receive services from CTOs, although the State expects many providers would benefit from the education and technical assistance tailored to their needs.
Lisa Firestone, President and CEO of MCA explained, “Managed Care Advisors is pleased to be partnering with Management Solutions, LLC as a CTO in the Maryland Primary Care Program. Having been a part of the managed care industry for three decades, I truly believe in the power of Care Coordination and its’ impact on the efficiency and effectiveness of the practice of medicine and ultimately health outcomes”
The Program is scheduled to begin in January 2019. For more information about the Maryland Primary Care Program, including the full list of selected CTOs, and practices – visit https://health.maryland.gov/mdpcp.
