CalAIM is a multi-year initiative by the California Department of Health Care Services to improve the quality of life and health outcomes of our population by implementing broad delivery system, program and payment reform across the Medi-Cal program. CalAIM consists of both federal waivers and state-only proposals to simplify and streamline the Medi-Cal program, including county behavioral health, county social services eligibility functions, and initiatives focused on children, foster youth, and those who are homeless or incarcerated. The proposal builds upon prior successes in health care delivery, and proposes to provide more services and supports for patients with complex needs. Key goals of CalAIM include promoting whole person care, reducing program complexity, and modernizing systems.
CSAC is glad to partner with Health Net of California to offer county supervisors, staff and others an opportunity to hear about the entire CalAIM experience and how plans like Health Net are partnering with counties to achieve success and implement the changes to improve outcomes in the Medi-Cal system. The panel which includes representatives from Health Net, San Diego County, a Community Based Organization will share an overview of the Whole Person Care program, the Health Homes Program, and insights on the transition work under way to “lift and shift” whole person care and health homes program to Enhanced Care Management and In Lieu if Services to the Managed Care Plans under CalAIM.
