Medi-Cal Managed Care
Medi-Cal Managed Care provides high quality, accessible, and cost-effective health care through managed care delivery systems.
Medi-Cal Managed Care 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 8.8 million Medi-Cal beneficiaries in all 58 California counties receive their health care through six main models of managed care: Two-Plan, County Organized Health Systems (COHS), Geographic Managed Care (GMC), Regional Model (RM), Imperial, and San Benito. Medi-Cal providers who wish to provide services to managed care enrollees must participate in the managed care plan’s provider network.
