The percentage of populations covered by these programs is on the upswing, with over one-third (37%) reporting medical homes for at least a fifth of their members and patients, up from 30% in Health Plan Development Health plans are behind physicians practices in medical home assignment. Over half (55%) of physician practices vs. less than one in three (29%)health plans have more than a fifth of their population in medical homes. 7/27/ URAC 11
