Looking Forward: Examining Long-Term Services and Supports Integration and Opportunities to Strengthen Coordination Under CalAIM
California’s two million Medi-Cal Seniors and Persons with Disabilities (SPDs) can face significant challenges getting the medical and long-term services and supports they need. Reform elements in the California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM) initiative have the potential to increase system integration and coordination of care for all SPDs — those with Medi-Cal only, and those who qualify for Medicare and Medi-Cal (dually eligible enrollees).
A new issue brief from the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) and Chapman Consulting builds on interviews with Medi-Cal managed care plans and other stakeholders to highlight challenges and opportunities regarding implementation of the proposed reforms. It also identifies key success factors for care innovation and integration, and opportunities to advance capacity for an integrated system of medical and long-term services and supports for all SPDs.
Webinar: To build on this issue brief, in partnership with CHCS and Chapman Consulting, CHCF is sponsoring a webinar on Tuesday, May 11, 11:15 AM-12:30 PM (PT): "Looking Forward: Examining Long-Term Services and Supports Integration and Opportunities to Strengthen Coordination Under CalAIM." Webinar panelists, including long-term services and supports (LTSS) and Medi-Cal managed care plan (MCP) representatives, will discuss experiences developing partnerships under the Coordinated Care Initiative, and will describe lessons around: (1) developing MCP and LTSS partnerships, including contracting; (2) addressing barriers and leveraging opportunities to expand access to home- and community-based services; and (3) elevating strategies to support data sharing and improve care coordination. The target audience for this webinar includes MCPs, LTSS providers, advocates, and other key MCP partners with an expected role in advancing SPD-focused reforms.
