California is moving forward with the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI), including the federally-approved dual eligible demonstration known as Cal MediConnect. The CCI started on April 1, 2014, in certain counties, and will continue to be implemented over the next year.
This webinar will cover the consumer protections provided under the CCI. This webinar will also provide a detailed summary of what benefits will be provided by Cal MediConnect plans and a review of what long-term services and supports are being integrated into managed care.
