HUSKY Health, Connecticut’s public health coverage program for Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) includes multiple programs for eligible children. In January 2012, HUSKY Health introduced a person-centered medical home (PCMH) initiative, based on the patient-centered medical home model of care. Under this initiative, financial incentives are provided to practices and clinics that achieve PCMH recognition.

A unique Glide Path program has been created to provide additional support to practices as they progress to become National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) recognized person-centered medical homes. Given the current success of the Glide Path program, Connecticut is planning to expand the program and provide this support to a greater number of practices statewide.
