CPMA Adds Important New Tools to its Duals Resource Center to Help Doctors and Patients Understand and Navigate the Program

 

The 2012 California state budget authorized a three-year demonstration project that transitions dual eligibles into managed care and allows them to receive medical, behavioral, long-term supports and services and home-and-community-based services coordinated through a single health plan.

The Cal MediConnect project was approved in 8 counties: Alameda, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Mateo, and Santa Clara. No more than 456,000 individuals will be allowed to enroll into Cal MediConnect. Los Angeles’ enrollment will be capped at 200,000.

To help doctors and their patients better understand the program, the California Podiatric Medical Association (CPMA) has added important new tools to its Duals Resource Center.  CPMA Members please log in for full content
