The California Coordinated Care Initiative: What Advocates Need to Know – Santa Clara County
Starting January 1, 2015, Santa Clara County became the sixth California county to move forward with the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI), including the federally-approved dual eligible demonstration project known as Cal MediConnect.
The CCI fundamentally changes the way that California 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 across California of the upcoming changes and help them understand how their clients will be impacted by the CCI.
This webinar will focus on the CCI and its roll out in Santa Clara County. Additional webinars will be held throughout the year for advocates in all CCI counties.
The webinar will cover:
- What is the CCI?
- Who is affected by the CCI?
- How are beneficiaries affected by the CCI in Santa Clara County?
- How does enrollment work in Santa Clara County?
- What can advocates do to help their clients?
