Patient Centered Care
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan has designated Family Practice of Cadillac as a 2020-2021 patient-centered medical home practice. The designation is effective until August 2022. A Patient Center Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of healthcare based on an ongoing, personal relationship between a patient, doctor and the patient’s care team.
