The journey to health is a lifelong journey. It's all about simple, everyday steps -- becoming more involved in your health, taking more accountability for making knowledgeable healthcare decisions and pursuing a balanced, healthy lifestyle.  

What is a medical home? 


You've probably heard the term "medical home." This is a group of primary care clinics that coordinate your care so you feel your best. These providers have met high standards to become part of the state Patient-Centered Primary Care Home (PCPCH) Program. To qualify as a medical home for Moda Health, a clinic must be a recognized PCPCH and also be an ODS Plus Network contracted provider.


There are some great reasons to see a Moda Health medical home provider for primary and incentive care. If you're on plans A-G, you'll just have a copay and your deductible will be waived. You'll also enjoy faster, better access to care from providers who work together to keep you healthy. There are more than 350 clinics statewide already. More clinics will join as they meet PCPCH standards.


How to find a Moda Health medical home:


1) If you do not have a doctor, you can easily find a clinic. Just go to, click "I'm a member," then click "Medical home." You can then search by county.


2) If you already have a primary care doctor, you can see whether he or she is a medical home provider. Just use our "Find Care" provider search and look for the "Medical Home" icon.
