WEBINAR: The California Coordinated Care Initiative: What Advocates Need to Know – Basics

When: Tuesday, May 26, 2015 11 – 12 PM PT

The state of California is moving forward with implementation of the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI), including the federally-approved dual eligible demonstration project, known as Cal MediConnect.  The CCI began on April 1, 2014, in some counties and is now being implemented in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties.  Dual elgibile beneficiaries living in Orange County began receiving notices in May 2015 for an August 1 start date.

The CCI fundamentally changes the way that California’s dual eligible beneficiaries and other low-income seniors and persons with disabilities get their health care.  Justice In Aging is providing a webinar training series to inform and educate advocates of the upcoming changes and help them understand how their clients will be impacted by the CCI.

The webinar series covers:

  • What is the CCI?
  • Who is affected by the CCI?
  • How are beneficiaries affected by the CCI?
  • How does enrollment work?
  • What can advocates do to help their clients?
