WHAT WE WILL COVER
Join Claire Ramsey, Senior Staff Attorney at Justice in Aging, and Sarah Steenhausen, Director of Policy and Advocacy for The SCAN Foundation, as they walk through CalAIM’s provisions and associated timeline for implementation, with discussion on what it means for you and your CBAS community.

CalAIM is a multi-year state initiative that seeks to implement broad delivery system, program and payment reform across the Medi-Cal program. The major components of CalAIM build upon various demonstrations by focusing on a whole-person care approach to care that targets social determinants of health and reduces health disparities and inequities.

Learn about how CalAIM impacts will impact the LTSS system in California, including proposed statewide expansion of Managed Long-Term Services and Supports, Enhanced Care Management and In-Lieu of Services.
