Coordinated Care Initiative Debrief

California’s Initiative to Integrate Managed Care and LTSS

 November 2014 Announcement: The CCI Will Not Launch in Alameda County

California is moving rapidly forward to integrate managed care and long term services and supports for seniors and people with disabilities who have Medi-Cal, including those with both Medi-Cal and Medicare coverage (“duals”).  Alameda County had been one of eight counties scheduled to launch this monumental undertaking, but that changed with the state’s November announcement. Below you can read about this and other developments as we reset, debrief, and get used to our new status quo.

Recent Developments

February 12, 2015 – On January 23, we reconvened the Coordinated Care Initiative Stakeholders Workgroup for a post-CCI Debriefing and discussion about opportunities that the group might pursue together. The Workgroup is made up of county agencies, managed care plans, community-based organizations and concerned consumers.

The group confirmed the importance of continuing to convene so that we can work together with the managed care plans to develop a robust system of better-coordinated long term supportive services and health care for Duals and SPDs. We plan to track the development of Medi-Cal’s Health Homes for Patients with Complex Needs, and to give input to the managed care plans as they plan the local implementation of Health Homes. We will also move forward with a campaign to encourage Duals and SPDs to update their complete Medi-Cal contact information and language preferences (you’ll be hearing more in coming months).

January 15, 2015 – The news that the CCI will not launch in Alameda County has left many consumers wondering about their options.  SSC recently teamed with Legal Assistance for Seniors/HICAP and Harbage Consulting to produce a webinar training to help community-based organizations inform and assist seniors and people with disabilities.  Click here for a pdf of the webinar presentation.
