HEALTH CARE HOMES

HEALTH CARE HOMES The Health Care Homes Program is administered by the Department of Health. A Health Care Homes trial site means a medical practice participating in the Health Care Homes Program. Commonwealth subsidy for the provision of services under the Health Care Homes Program is paid through bundled payments to the Health Care Home.

Item 6087 has been established so that, when claimed, it will record when a Health Care Home patient incurs an out-of-pocket expense. The out-of-pocket cost will then count toward their or their family's Extended Medicare Safety Net.

Item 6087 should only be claimed in the event that a Health Care Home charges a Health Care Home patient an out-of-pocket cost. Item 6087 must not be used for any other purpose.

Item 6087 cannot be claimed as a bulk-billed service.
