The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has a launched the Independence at Home Demonstration program for up to 10,000 chronically ill Medicare beneficiaries.

The program will “test a payment incentive and service delivery system that utilizes physician and nurse practitioner directed home-based primary care teams aimed at improving health outcomes and reducing expenditures,” according to a notice being published Dec. 21 in the Federal Register. IAH Demonstration is a shared savings program that involves care coordination across all treatment settings. Each participating practice will be responsible for providing services to at least 200 beneficiaries. Practices may apply as a sole legal entity, consortium or as part of a national pool.
