In 2008, the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, Office of MaineCare Services, contracted with the Muskie School of Public Service to design and complete a survey of Maine physician practices. The survey was administered by mail with telephone follow-up between August 29, 2008 and April 3, 2009. Two hundred forty-five (245) physicians and 364 office managers responded, representing 414 separate practice sites. The survey obtained information on respondents' experience with MaineCare, perceptions of MaineCare's business practices, attitudes towards potential incentives for MaineCare participation, and satisfaction with MaineCare program elements, such as the Primary Care Physician Incentive Payment (PCPIP) and Primary Care Case Management (PCCM) management fee.
