Cal MediConnect health plans must complete a Health Risk Assessment (HRA) for each new enrollee. This process serves as the basis for further assessment needs that may include, but are not limited to, mental health, substance use, chronic physical conditions, incapacity in key activities of daily living, dementia, cognitive status, and the capacity to make informed decisions.
The State is seeking stakeholder comment on the proposed HRA process. The proposal (below) lays out a procedure for health plans to primarily attempt to complete the HRA in person or by telephone. After those attempts, the HRA may be completed by mail or web-based mail.

DHCS leaders will host a call to discuss the proposal with stakeholders. This 60 minute call is scheduled for Tuesday, April 23, 2013 from 2-3pm.
