2020 Priority Medicare D-SNP Model of Care Training

January 29, 2020

2020 PriorityMedicare D-SNP Model of Care provider training is now available

Providers play an integral role in the care teams that support our dual-eligible special needs members. That’s why the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires us to make sure providers who routinely see PriorityMedicare D-SNP patients are trained on our Model of Care. Our Model of Care is a quality improvement tool that ensures the unique needs of our D-SNP members are met and describes the processes and systems we use to coordinate their care.


Who needs to complete Model of Care training?

All providers who see PriorityMedicare D-SNP members must complete the training. Because PriorityMedicare D-SNP uses the Priority Health Medicare network, providers within this network should plan to complete the training.


How to access training

Training can be completed using one of two options:

Option 1: Providers can access Model of Care training as an on-demand webinar. It takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and can be accessed here. Providers can individually self-report attestation using the online training tool. If selecting this option, send the below link to your providers:

Option 2: We can supply the training deck to your group to be distributed in your preferred format. This option works best if an existing process is in place for other provider training obligations, like compliance training. If this option is selected, you will need to:

  • Distribute training to their providers
  • Sign and return the attached group attestation form, along with a roster of providers who have received the training. Use the attached provider roster template. 


All training and attestations must be completed no later than Dec. 31, 2020.
