Maryland Primary Care Program

What is MDPCP?

The Maryland Primary Care Program (MDPCP) was created by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to strengthen primary care through care coordination and performance-based payments. The Model is based on the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus Model and aims to reduce healthcare costs and improve quality of care for Maryland Medicare beneficiaries. Participants are expected to undergo practice transformation focused on a move to patient-centered care and comprehensive care management.

Model Start: January 1, 2019
Model End: December 31, 2026
