State Offering Webinar on Coordinated Care Initiative July 19, 2013 General Webinar, CalMediConnect, Coordinated Care Intitiative, Duals Demonstration 0 The California Department of Health Services is offering two more educational webinars on the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI) in July. It is important to note that these webinars will NOT be recorded or available for on-demand playback. Physicians and their staff in affected counties are encouraged to participate in one of the live webinars, Tuesday, July 23 or Tuesday, July 30. The initiative, also known as "CalMediConnect," was authorized by the Assembly in July 2012 in an effort to save money and better coordinate care for the state's low-income seniors and persons with disabilities. The program begins with a three-year demonstration project that will transition more than 450,000 of the state's dual eligible beneficiaries - those eligible for both Medicare and Medi-Cal - into managed care plans. Enrollment begins no sooner than January 2014 in 8 counties (Alameda, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino). Physicians, other providers and their staff are invited to participate in one of the July webinars: Tuesday, July 23 at 6:00pm (Click here to register) Tuesday, July 30 at 5:00pm (Click here to register) Each webinar will include a 30 minute overview of the program, including continuity of care provisions, and 30 minutes of Q&A. Note that the content of the overview will be the same on both dates. Additional webinars will be scheduled as enrollment nears.
