Maryland Primary Care Program
Enhanced Primary Care for Marylanders
As of January 2019, Marylanders can get many enhanced services through their primary care practices that are enrolled in the Maryland Primary Care Program (MDPCP). These services are designed to make it easier for your doctor to help you with a wide range of health and social needs to better manage your health. Your current benefits won’t change, the enhanced services won’t cost you anything extra, and you don’t have to sign up for anything. Primary care practices in the MDPCP have made a voluntary commitment to improving care for all patients, specifically focusing on expanding their role in prevention, management of chronic diseases and improving access to care.

Enhanced Primary Care Services at No Extra Cost to You
Your primary care doctor will use a team approach to your care. This means your doctor will have more people in the practice who can help you better understand and manage your health. Your primary care doctor will also help coordinate your care with other outside doctors, such as specialists, or mental health or substance abuse services.
Primary care practices in the program can offer you services including:
· Mental health and substance use disorder help
· Help connecting with specialists
· Links to social services such as transportation, food, housing, and much more
· More convenient choices for getting care, such as expanded office hours and care outside the office
· Assistance from a Care Manager who can help you with major transitions, such as getting released from a hospital, and everyday matters, such as understanding how to take medicines as directed
Please ask your primary care doctor for more information about the services available in their office.
