For a beneficiary to participate in an Innovation Model or Demonstration, the beneficiary must first choose a participating provider to be their primary care physician. When accepting a referral for home health services, make sure to ask the referring physician if the beneficiary is currently participating in a Demonstration or Innovation Model. The referring doctor (primary care physician) should have this information as they generally sign the plan of care.
