The Florida Academy of Family Physicians (FAFP) Board continues to recognize the need to support FAFP members who are prepared to become recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) or Joint Commission as a Patient-Center Medical Home (PCMH). Such recognition is becoming increasingly important due to the implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) and associated Merit-Based Payment Systems (MIPs) and Alternative Payment Models (APMs) that reimburse PCMH practices with enhanced payments.
The FAFP will incentivize, for the first 25 participating FAFP member office practices, a flat amount (see below) of an office practice's consultation expense when contracted with the Center for the Advancement of Health IT (AHIT) or the University of Central Florida College of Medicine’s HealthARCH (HealthARCH). Each program has been vetted by the FAFP and offer members a choice based upon their practice’s needs.
