The California Health Care, Research and Prevention Tobacco Tax Act of 2016 (Prop. 56) created new revenues dedicated to the Medi-Cal program. Physicians receive supplemental payments in both fee-for-service and Medi-Cal managed care when providing Medi-Cal services under certain CPT codes.
The California Medical Association (CMA) is hosting a one-hour webinar—Proposition 56 funds: What’s new for FY 19-20 and beyond—on Wednesday, October 16 at 12:15 p.m. to discuss the services eligible for FY 19-20 supplemental payments, payment amounts, tips on ensuring your practice receives the full amount of eligible funds and the distribution timelines of the FY 18-19 funds.
The webinar will also cover what’s new for FY 2019-2020 and beyond and how CMA advocacy to increase access to care for Medi-Cal patients has resulted in an additional $2.2 billion in supplemental payments. Presenters will also discuss Prop. 56 implementation for FY 19-20, new funding for value-based care, developmental and trauma screening and more money for loan repayment.
Registration is free for CMA members and their staff ($99 for nonmembers).
