Earlier this year, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) reached an agreement with five commercial managed care plans to deliver Medi-Cal services in 21 counties across the state starting in January 2024. As a result, approximately 1.2 million Medi-Cal patients will be required to transition to a new a new health plan, and in some counties Medi-Cal patients will have the ability to select from more than one plan.
The California Medical Association is hosting a free webinar with DHCS on August 10, 2023, to help physicians understand and prepare for the transition. DHCS will present an overview of the transition, including health plan changes by county, work underway to ensure a smooth transition, the enrollee continuity of care policy, and physician and patient resources available. DHCS will be available for a question-and-answer session and would like to hear feedback from physicians about how to ensure a smooth transition for Medi-Cal enrollees and providers.
The one-hour webinar on August 10 is free to all interested parties. Click here to register.
