CalAIM Implementation: Funding and Operational Support for Community-Based Solutions

Over the past decade, the state’s Medi-Cal Program has significantly expanded and evolved. On January 1, 2022, implementation of ​California Advancing and​ Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM), a Medi-Cal transformation initiative, was launched for many counties across the state. ITUP brought together state leaders from The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to discuss opportunities for engagement and support to assist CalAIM implementation such as Providing Access and Transforming Health (PATH) Funds and the Incentive Payment Program (IPP).

In another panel, ITUP convened local health plans, clinics, and community-based organizations (CBOs) together to discuss funding and other supports necessary for CalAIM implementation. Health plans elaborated on their efforts to support local clinics and CBOs to leverage state funds and assist in capacity-building efforts for organizations to provide services to Medi-Cal members. The community-based providers shared their experiences with scaling up and adapting their work and services to make CalAIM successful for the communities they serve.
