​Office of Medicare Innovation and Integration

The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) Office of Medicare Innovation and Integration (OMII) provides focused leadership and expertise on innovative models for Medicare beneficiaries in California, including Medicare-only beneficiaries, and individuals dually eligible for Medicare and Medi-Cal.  The purpose of OMII is to improve health outcomes, quality, affordability, and equity for Medicare beneficiaries in California.  Consistent with the Governor’s Master Plan for Aging, OMII will:  1) Support new and existing models and strategies to benefit Medicare-only beneficiaries in California and increase access to Long-Term Services and Supports; and 2) Lead the effort within CalAIM to develop policy and provide access to integrated care through aligned enrollment in Dual-Eligible Special Needs Plans (D-SNPs) and Medi-Cal plans.
