South Carolina Solutions
Improving Health Outcomes . . . One Member at a Time
South Carolina Solutions (SCS) has been serving the South Carolina Medicaid population as a Medical Homes Network since 2006. Our program is patient-centered and provider-driven. It is built on the basic principle that Primary Care Providers (PCPs) offer their patients a medical home which is integral to timely, accessible, patient-focused care delivery.
The medical home model of care is an integrated approach that partners the member, the family, the provider, and other natural supports such as community-based services in a holistic approach to health care. As a result of our medical home model, the SCS Provider is able to eliminate barriers to care, create improved access to preventive services, and better manage patients with chronic conditions.
One goal of SCS has always been to support our network of providers and their staff by offering tools to help them better meet the needs of their patients and strengthen the patient-doctor relationship.
Recently, the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) determined that they intend to move to a "hybrid" model of care which incorporates elements of both the Medical Home Network (MHN) and Managed Care Organization (MCO) models of care. Therefore SCS will transition from a Fee for Service MHN program to a fully capitated managed care model. In addition to the current medical home/PCP network, the primary change will mean SCS will have a contracted network of specialists, hospitals, and ancillary providers as opposed to an open network as it is now.
SCS remains committed to supporting our network of providers, their staff, and our members by maintaining an integrated model of care, keeping the primary care provider at the center of member care and offering tools to help you manage your practice.
