Medi-Cal Managed Care
The Medi-Cal Managed Care Division (MMCD) provides high quality, accessible, and cost-effective health care through managed care delivery systems.
MMCD contracts for health care services through established networks of organized systems of care, which emphasize primary and preventive care. Managed care plans are a cost-effective use of health care resources that improve health care access and assure quality of care. Today, approximately 4.5 million Medi-Cal beneficiaries in 30 counties receive their health care through three models of managed care: Two-Plan, County Organized Health Systems (COHS) and Geographic Managed Care (GMC). Medi-Cal providers who wish to provide services to managed care enrollees must participate in the managed care plan’s provider network.
