DHCS to Offer Coordinated Care Initiative Webinar for Physicians
Aug. 21 webinar tailored specifically to physicians, other providers and their staff

The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will offer an educational webinar on the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI) for physicians and other providers on Aug. 21 at 5 p.m. The CCI integrates delivery of medical, behavioral and long-term care services, and includes the Cal MediConnect program. Cal MediConnect offers individuals with both Medicare and Medi-Cal – commonly referred to as “dual eligible” beneficiaries – the opportunity to benefit from more coordinated care. The webinar will include a 30-minute overview of Cal MediConnect, including continuity of care provisions and a 30-minute question-and-answer period.

Enrollment in Cal MediConnect is scheduled to begin no sooner than April 2014 in eight participating counties (Alameda, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino). The webinar content will be relevant specifically for physicians, other providers and their staff. While future dates will be announced for other stakeholders, DHCS asks that only physicians, other providers and their staff register and participate in this webinar.
