Upcoming DHCS Conference Focuses on LIHP Transition

On Aug.15, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research will conduct a conference in Sacramento to provide an overview of the Low Income Health Program (LIHP) transition and to solicit stakeholder feedback. The conference, also offered in webinar format, will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sacramento Convention Center. DHCS invites all LIHP stakeholders to participate, including those at the state, legislative, administration and county level, as well as LIHP advocates. Discussion items include the LIHP transition, including information on Covered California, Medi-Cal managed care plans, data sharing and more. Registration is free but space is limited.

DHCS also will broadcast the event live as a webinar to accommodate those not able to attend in person. The webinar will be audio- and presentation-based. There will not be a live video feed, nor will viewers have the option to ask questions. For more information on the webinar, visit the online webinar registration site.

The event is sponsored by Blue Shield of California Foundation.
