Section 204 of the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006 (TRHCA) mandates a demonstration in up to 8 states to provide targeted, accessible, continuous and coordinated family-centered care to Medicare beneficiaries who are deemed to be high need (that is, with multiple chronic or prolonged illnesses that require regular medical monitoring, advising or treatment.) On September 25, 2007, CMS selected Mathematica Policy Research to provide assistance in the design of the Medical Home Demonstration. Implementation is expected in January 2010. The demonstration will take place in eight states, involve urban and rural practices, and target chronically ill Medicare patients. CMS will start recruiting physician practices for the project in January 2009.
