Slide notes:In the traditional model of medical care, payment for health care services typically reflects face-to-face services provided by the clinician to the patient. In patient-centered medical home, the payment model is enlarged to appropriately recognize the added value provided to patients who select the patient-centered medical home. It also reflects the value of physician and non-physician staff, and patient-centered care management work that falls outside of the face-to-face encounter. Payment for coordination of care includes care provided within a given practice, as well as care provided between consultants, ancillary providers, and community resources. These options include payments for face-to-face visits, and also for services associated with coordination of care. 12
