Over the past decade, the state’s Medi-Cal Program has significantly expanded and evolved. Over the next few years, California’s Medi-Cal Managed Care program will be undergoing many changes with the goal of achieving better health outcomes and create a more equitable health care system for Californians. With the first phase of CalAIM Implementation right around the corner, this event explored the preparation and anticipated challenges ahead for the Medi-Cal program.

Attendees heard from county health care services leaders about the nuances of CalAIM implementation paralleled with pending Medi-Cal Managed Care plan changes occurring through DHCS’s Medi-Cal procurement. They also heard from ITUP’s regional workgroup participants on their perspective for making CalAIM meaningful and a means to address the social determinants of health.

Below are resources and a recording of the event.
