Expanding Access to Integrated Care for Dual Eligible Californians

Under the California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal Initiative (CalAIM), the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) 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" policy memo, which outlines the Department's transition plan for dual eligibles and Cal MediConnect within CalAIM. 

On March 1, 2021, DHCS released the updated “Expanding Access to Integrated Care for Dual Eligible Californians" policy memo, which outlines the Department's transition plan for dual eligibles and Cal MediConnect within CalAIM. ​

CalAIM MLTSS and Duals Integration Workgroup

The CalAIM MLTSS and Duals Integration Workgroup will serve as a stakeholder collaboration hub for this effort, including health plans, stakeholders, and the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).  This Workgroup will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to provide feedback and share information about policy, operations, and strategy for the Department's transition plan for dual eligibles and the CCI transition within the CalAIM initiative.

Initial workgroup discussions will focus on policies and operations to transition CalMedi-Connect members to aligned D-SNP/Medi-Cal managed care enrollment.  Future topics will be developed based on CalAIM goals and MPA topics around integrated care for dual eligible Californians.
