How can you get both high quality and lower costs? Research shows that, overall, patients cared for by PCMH practices are less likely to visit the ER. They also need hospital care less than patients who don’t have well-coordinated care.
Coordination between you and your providers also leads to better health results, fewer errors such as drug interactions, fewer duplicate tests, and quicker, better communication.
Your insurance plan may charge you less if you use a medical home, but pay your medical home more for your care. This is because medical homes offer you more services and better care. Medical homes also save money by keeping all their patients as healthy as possible.
