The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Innovation Center is accepting applications for federally qualified health centers seeking to participate in a medical home demonstration project called FQHC Advanced Primary Care Practice.

CMS expects participating centers to better coordinate and improve care for up to 195,000 Medicare patients over three years. The agency will run the program with the Health Resources and Services Administration.

Participating FQHCs will be paid a monthly care management fee for each eligible Medicaid beneficiary receiving primary care services. The centers will adopt care coordination practices that the National Committee for Quality Assurance has recognized, and will receive technical assistance from CMS and HRSA.

CMS will accept applications through August 21. Information on the FQHC medical home demonstration program and instructions for applying are available here.
