DHCS Releases Revised D-SNP Policy Proposal
The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) released the "Expanding Access to Integrated Care for Dual Eligible Californians" policy memo, updated based upon stakeholder feedback. This memo outlines the Department's transition plan for dual eligibles and the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI) within the  California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM) initiative. CalAIM is intended to improve the quality of life and health outcomes of the Medi-Cal population by implementing broad delivery system, program and payment reform across the program. DHCS discussed this memo and the broader initiative at the Long Term Services and Support convening on February 24, 2020. Additional convening materials are available on the CalDuals blog.
