 50 Million Dollar Grant Could Improve Local Health Care

A federal grant applied by the local insurance and medical groups could bring $50 million a year from federal taxpayers to help pay for local health care across Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

If this region is approved by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, it will pay to doctors an average $20 per Medicare or Medicaid patient per month, on top of their normal reimbursements - to provide "Patient Centered Medical Homes.

The Medicare innovation program is part of the landmark 2010 health care reform law and among the several programs, it will be the biggest one promoting Patient Centered Medical Homes. If the grant is approved, it would directly affect the care of up to 330,000 Medicare patients, plus thousands more commercial insurance members.
