PPACA creates powerful incentives so that more health care providers start delivering the kind of coordinated, patient-centered care that has been shown to get best results.

ppaca and the states
PPACA and the States

  • States must also create, manage and regulate new insurance exchanges for both individual residents and businesses.
  • The extensive new regulations for the health insurance plans must be enforced by the states as well.
ppaca funding opportunities
PPACA Funding Opportunities
  • The Medical Home State Options offers states enhanced match of 90 percent FMAP for two years and small planning grants may be available to promote the use of medical homes for enrollees with chronic conditions. West Virginia has been a leader in developing the medical home concept.
  • WV has applied and received a planning grant for this opportunity. Health Homes for persons with Chronic Conditions.
  • WV has received a Money Follows the Person grant.
