Arkansas Medicaid’s Patient Centered Medical Homes enrollment process began September 1, 2015 and will end on November 13, 2015. The enrollment process continues to require current PCMH practices to re-enroll for 2016 using the abbreviated form sent out in August to designated PCMH leads. Any new practice interested in joining PCMH can access the PCMH enrollment application on the AHIN portal. Please submit all enrollment forms via fax at 501-374-0549 or via e-mail at ARKPII@hp.com with the subject line “Attn: PCMH.”
For the 2016 PCMH performance period, all PCMH’s that do not meet the 5,000 six-month beneficiary count requirement to be a standalone pool for shared savings will be placed in the default pool. Providers have the opportunity to opt out of the default pool by voluntarily pooling with other PCMH’s to meet the 5,000 beneficiary requirement. If your pool does not meet the 5,000 beneficiary requirement at the time of payment, you will not be eligible for shared savings. All pooling forms are due November 13, 2015. For more information on pooling, please contact HP at 501-301-3811 or ARKPII@hpe.com.
