DHCS Issues Revised Choice Form for CCI

The Department of Health Care Services has issued revised enrollment materials for the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI), which provides for the enrollment of dually eligible beneficiaries in eight designated counties into managed care. The materials and associated Choice Form were revised in response to stakeholder concerns that the current notices did not adequately communicate choices and required action for CCI-eligible individuals — in particular, the ability and process to opt out and maintain traditional Medicare coverage. Use of the revised Choice Form will begin in September with the 60-day notices sent to those subject to passive enrollment in November. Attached are samples of the revised Choice Form and enrollment materials.
