Our practice is participating in the Maryland Primary Care Program (MDPCP), a state-wide initiative to improve primary care.
Giving Practices Extra Support to Help you Receive Better Care
Through MDPCP, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will give our practice additional resources to help us better manage your care. We hope to provide you the highest quality patient-centered care.
Additional Information for Traditional Medicare (Part A & Part B) Beneficiaries
To help us provide you with the best care, Medicare will start sharing some of your personal health information with us and the State Designated Health Information Exchange (CRISP), to share with other health professionals providing care to you. This will provide us with a more complete picture of your health and allow us to better coordinate your care.
Your Medicare benefits ARE NOT changing. Enhanced services covered by this program will not require additional cost-sharing for you. You still have the right to use or visit any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare at any time. Your doctor may continue to recommend that you see particular doctors for your specific health needs, but it’s always your choice which doctors or hospital(s) you visit.
Data Sharing Opt Out
If you want Medicare to stop sharing this personal health information, please contact 1-800-MEDICARE. A Health Information Exchange, or HIE, is a way of sharing your health information among participating doctors’ offices, hospitals, and care coordinators.
