REGISTRATION FEE: There is no charge for members of the NYS AAP – Chapters 1, 2 or 3 to attend.
     Does your practice take Medicaid? Are you being asked about Value Based Payment contracts with your commercial and Medicaid insurance companies? Do you know that New York State has made a commitment to move all primary care practices into NYS PCMH in two years? Is your practice already NCQA certified? Do you know how to access enhanced primary care payments for practice transformation activities? Did you know that there is, for a limited time, free Technical Assistance to help your practice move toward NYS PCMH certification?
     Our presenters are the senior State Department of Health staff who guided the creation of Advanced Primary Care and the state’s transition to NYS PCMH. They are the experts and will guide you through the state’s new program for pediatric primary care. The webinar will outline all key issues and challenges and will offer options for every practice to move forward with free regionally available Technical Assistance. There will be adequate time for a Q&A with all participants.
     Don’t miss this critically important opportunity to start your NYS PCMH journey or to facilitate your practice moving forward in the credentialing process.
