will transition Cal MediConnect (CMC) and the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI)
to a statewide Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) and Dual
Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP) structure. This policy is intended to help
meet the statewide goals of improving care integration and person-centered
care, under both CalAIM and the California Master Plan for Aging (MPA).
On February 24, 2020, DHCS released the “Expanding Access to Integrated Care for
Dual Eligible Californians

operations, and strategy for the Department's transition plan for dual
eligibles and the CCI transition within the CalAIM initiative.
