Primary Care Should Support the AHEAD Model

  • 18 Jun 2024

The Task Force on Primary Care Workforce Development heard a presentation this month on the AHEAD Model from Elena Nicolella of the Rhode Island Health Center Association. The presentation focused on the benefits the AHEAD Model would afford to primary care. If accepted to Cohort 3, Rhode Island could realize $12 million in funding for a two-year planning period. The multi-year implementation phase will include enhanced prospective per-member-per-month payments for Medicare beneficiaries. Primary care providers are encouraged to submit letters of support to the Governor and OHIC Commissioner in favor of the AHEAD Model application, which is due August 12, 2024.
