DHCS to Provide Coordinated Care Initiative Updates in Monday Webinar

The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will conduct a stakeholder webinar on Aug. 19 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. to provide an update on the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI). The CCI integrates delivery of medical, behavioral and long-term care services. It also includes the Cal MediConnect program, which is an opportunity for individuals with both Medicare and Medi-Cal – commonly referred to as “dual eligible” beneficiaries – to benefit from more coordinated care.

Enrollment in the Cal MediConnect program 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). For more information, visit the online registration site or
