As part of CalAIM, California’s broad Medi-Cal managed care delivery system and payment reforms, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is transitioning 325,000 dual eligible beneficiaries in 31 counties to Medi-Cal managed care effective January 1, 2023. This transition is primarily affecting patients in the Central Valley and Bay Area.
The California Medical Association (CMA) is hosting a webinar with DHCS to answer physicians’ frequently asked questions about this transition on Thursday, January 12, 2023, at 12:15 p.m. The one-hour webinar is free to all interested parties.
According to DHCS, this transition to Medi-Cal managed care will increase the level of care coordination and support offered to dual eligibles, while maintaining beneficiary choice of Medicare providers and plans. This transition will not impact patients’ Medicare coverage, nor will it change dual-eligible beneficiaries’ benefits or providers.
The transition will only impact dual eligible beneficiaries – individuals with both Medicare and Medi-Cal – not already enrolled in Medi-Cal managed care.
