The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with California to begin moving ALL "dual eligible" Medi-Cal beneficiaries into Medi-Cal Managed Care within eight counties and enroll these patients into the matching Medicare HMO plan. This is a monumental and complex undertaking that fundamentally changes how medical and long term services and supports (LTSS) are provided and paid. A website for the public has been set up by the state's contractor at www.calduals.org.
This Webinar will include:
- Overview of Cal MediConnect, the demonstration's new name, and how it will affect CBAS patients and their providers
- Presentation by Sarah Steenhausen, Senior Policy Advisor with the SCAN Foundation
- Presentation by Lydia Missaelides, Executive Director of CAADS
