Health Affairs Event Reminder: The Medi-Cal Waiver And Health System Improvement In California
HealthAffairs Blog

California’s five-year federal waiver to help revamp the state’s $95 billion Medi-Cal program is set to expire on October 31, 2015. While crucial changes have been made to the program in terms of flexibility and accountability, and coverage has been vastly expanded, much work remains to be done before Medi-Cal can be considered truly transformed.

With support from Blue Shield of California Foundation and California HealthCare Foundation, the editors of Health Affairs invite you to join us in person or via live webcast for an important briefing on Thursday, June 11, in Sacramento. At this event, “The Medi-Cal Waiver: Perspectives on Promoting Health System Improvement in California,” experts will discuss how waivers are being used to promote system improvement, delve into California’s experiences with and lessons from the current waiver, and explore opportunities in the recently submitted waiver renewal application.
