Attention Medicare patients: CPC+… What is it? Why are we excited to be a part of it?

We have been chosen to participate in
Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+)

Our practice is participating in CPC+, the nation’s largest-ever program to improve primary care.

Giving doctors extra support to help you get better care

Through CPC+, our insurers will give our practice additional resources to help us better manage your care. We hope to provide you the highest quality patient-centered care.

More information for traditional Medicare (Part A and Part B) beneficiaries

To help us take better care of you, Medicare will start sharing some of your personal health information with us. This will help provide us with a more complete picture of your health and be better able to coordinate your care.

If you want to stop Medicare from sharing this information, you should call
1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.

Your Medicare benefits aren’t changing. You still have the right to use or visit any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time. Your doctor may continue to recommend that you see particular doctors for your specific health needs, but it’s always your choice which doctors you use or hospital you visit.

Questions?

If you have questions or concerns, you can call Haller & Hug, PC at 248-477-5608 or bring it up next time you’re in the office for an appointment. You can also visit https://innovation.cms.gov/initiatives/comprehensive-primary-care-plus, contact CPC+ Support at CPCPlus@Telligen.com or 1-888-372-3280, or call 1‑800-MEDICARE with questions.

What is Patient Centered Medical Home? PCMH

We are proud to say Haller & Hug, PC has been a Patient-Centered Medical Home since 2010.

Patient-Centered Medical Home is a concept where patients take an active role in their own health care, working closely with their primary care physicians to navigate through the health care system. The PCP coordinates all of their patients’ care, manages chronic conditions, tracks all medications and lab results (prescribed by himself or specialists), offers extended office hours and works with other health care professionals in an effort to promote total health care and avoid complications.

If you have any questions about our Patient Centered Medical Home please ask your physician or a staff member next time you are in the office.

Measles

Here is some information about measles taken from the CDC webpage.

1. The majority of those who got measles were unvaccinated.

2. Being fully vaccinated means getting two doses of MMR.

3. It presents as a fever and characteristic rash

4. The incubation period is 7-18 days, so if someone was exposed to a known measles case (or even a questionable one), and they haven’t developed a rash 3 weeks later – they don’t have measles.

5. Measles is passed by respiratory droplets and is very contagious to those who are not immune.

6. The measles vaccine wasn’t developed until 1963, so those born prior to that probably got the disease and are now immune, despite not receiving the vaccine.
