This resource summarizes the benefits and characteristics of CCTs, including descriptions of several statewide initiatives.
- CCTs are multidisciplinary groups of care providers who address both medical issues and the social determinants of health. Teams typically include clinical and non-traditional providers such as community health workers, peers, and patient navigators.
- Over the past decade, statewide initiatives to implement CCTs in Maine, North Carolina, and Vermont are beginning to show improvements in health outcomes in these states.
- Payment models for CCTs vary. Options include a single payment that covers all services for a given intervention; a risk-sharing agreement for provider partners; and Medicaid reimbursement for non-clinical preventive services.
