Important Announcements
Cal MediConnect Data Workgroup for Plans
The new three-way contracts require Cal MediConnect plans to begin sharing data when members transfer between plans to help support continuity of care. A new workgroup of Cal MediConnect plans, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) representatives will develop a set of recommendations on what should be included in that data package, how the data sharing process should work, and the implementation process and timeline. The workgroup kicked off April 19 and expects to have recommendations to DHCS later this year.
