Santa Clara County Physician Webinar
Thursday, January 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This webinar is designed for physicians and will explain the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI), launched by the state of California for people with both Medicare and Medi-Cal – dual eligibles. The Coordinated Care Initiative includes Cal MediConnect, a health plan that brings together Medicare and Medi-Cal benefits, and mandatory Medi-Cal managed care for people who remain in Original Medicare (fee-for-service).
The Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI) is a new program designed to help provide that extra support for low-income seniors and people with disabilities in California, including those who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medi-Cal. The CCI is available in seven counties: Santa Clara, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, and San Mateo. The Coordinated Care Initiative grew out of research and pilots conducted in California and other states showing that dual eligible individuals can benefit from better coordination of care.
The topics covered include:
1. Overview: How the Coordinated Care Initiative is changing health care for dual eligible patients;
2. Continuity of Care: How to keep seeing your patients if they join a Cal MediConnect plan;
3. Care Coordination: How Cal MediConnect plans can help support physicians in coordinating care for patients, including long-term services and supports;
4. Billing Processes: How billing will work under Cal MediConnect, and how to submit crossover claims to Medi-Cal plans for Medicare fee-for-service patients.
