While the state of California maintains overall responsibility for the Medicaid program, most of the services and most of the beneficiaries in Medi-Cal are served through the Medi-Cal managed care delivery system. To improve care for Medi-Cal enrollees and ensure coordination and quality, CaliforniaHealth+ Advocates must champion change not just with the state, but with California’s many Medi-Cal managed care plans. It is our goal to partner with managed care organizations and other stakeholders to collaborate on statewide, regional, and county-level policies that increase communication throughout the delivery system and align incentives around whole person, coordinated care. We also seek to remove regulatory barriers and increase flexibility for community health centers (CHCs) in order to pave the way for greater participation in the managed care delivery system.
