Patient-Centered Medical Home
We’re connecting physicians, nutritionists, care coordinators and even your pharmacists -- so you’re provided with comprehensive care and a full understanding of your medications.
To encourage members to receive care at a patient-centered medical home (PCMH), beginning January 1, 2016, the State Health Plan will not charge Standard Plan members who use a PCMH the $12 copayment for a physician office visit. After Savings Plan and Standard Plan subscribers meet their deductibles, they will only pay 10 percent coinsurance, rather than 20 percent.
When you receive care through a PCMH, YOU are the center of care. You will work with a health care team to improve your overall health by setting goals and making a plan to meet them.
BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina has several PCMH practices in our network across the state. A PCMH is a regular doctor’s office; however, it has met special criteria to be recognized as a PCMH. The goal is to provide a true partnership between a patient and a health care team — including not only care, but value.
With a medical “home,” you can count on a single, trusted doctor and health care team to provide comprehensive, coordinated care. Your PCMH team can help you manage your health, including getting preventive and follow-up care when needed.
