Starting January 1, 2023, a number of important changes will impact the way individuals dually eligible for Medicare and Medi-Cal and older adults on Medi-Cal receive their health care in California. The changes include those that are part of California’s five-year initiative, California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM), and the implementation of new federal policies from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This webinar will provide an overview of these changes and their impact on the approximately 1.4 million individuals dually eligible for Medicare and Medi-Cal and low-income older adults in the state. This webinar is a continuation of Justice in Aging’s September and July webinars on the same topic.
In this webinar, we will cover:
-Mandatory enrollment into Medi-Cal managed care for dually eligible individuals throughout the state
-The carve-in of Medi-Cal’s long-term care benefit into Medi-Cal managed care plans
-The termination of Cal MediConnect and the transition of Cal MediConnect enrollees into Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans (D-SNPs) in Coordinated Care Initiative Counties
-Enhanced Care Management 2023 Populations of Focus
-D-SNP look alike transition
-Medi-Cal matching plan policy in 12 counties
