Today, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is releasing the “Expanding Access to Integrated Care for Dual Eligible Californians” policy memo, updated based on stakeholder feedback. This memo outlines the department’s transition plan for dual eligibles and the Coordinated Care Initiative within the California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM) initiative to improve the quality of life and health outcomes of the Medi-Cal population by implementing broad delivery system, program and payment reform across the program.
This afternoon, on February 24th, DHCS will be discussing the proposal to transition Cal MediConnect (CMC) and the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI) to a statewide Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) and Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP) structure. DHCS will review the updated policy as well as preview a new information sharing policy proposal for D-SNP plan year 2021 based on new federal guidance, engage stakeholders around consumer messaging and protections, and invite public comment.
