This article provides recommendations for adapting the pediatric medical home (PMH) model for health care needs of youth in foster care. Recommendations are based on key informant interviews regarding experiences at an established PMH for youth in foster care. Major clinic recommendations include expanding the PMH framework to include proficiency in Medicaid billing, promoting true interdisciplinary care teams, improving care accessibility via phone consultation, providing a stable place for medical records to be housed, delivering services throughout stages of the child welfare case, incorporating all family members, and implementing trauma-informed practice. Preliminary evidence suggests that the PMH model of care may be ideal for addressing the complex and often underserved needs of youth in foster care and their families. The present recommendations provide a logistical framework for establishing a clinic that thoughtfully considers the unique needs of this population. Future research is needed to examine best practices for implementation.
