What is MiPCT?

MiPCT stands for the Michigan Primary Care Transformation project

Goals of the MiPCT project:
The main goal of the MiPCT project is to improve the delivery of primary care and lower health care costs while demonstrating a budget neutral system of care.  During this 3 year period, the services will only be offered to a select number of patients whose insurances are participating in the project.  If the project is a success, it is likely that many other insurances will cover these services and we will be able to offer this to many more of our patients.  Other goals of the project are:
  • Reduce unjustified health care usage and expenditures
  • Increase the ability of beneficiaries to participate in decisions concerning their care
  • Improve the safety, effectiveness, timeliness, and efficiency of health care
  • Increase the availability and delivery of care that is consistent with evidence-based guidelines in underserved areas
