CHA will host a Feb. 3 webinar on changes to Medi-Cal long-term care (LTC), which is being standardized across the state under California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal.
Effective Jan. 1, all managed care plans must authorize and cover medically necessary LTC services at skilled-nursing facilities (SNFs). During the webinar, the Department of Health Care Services will explain what this transition means for SNFs.
- Authorization processes, including transportation coordination, and managed care plan responsibilities
- Per diem rates for routine services
- Continuity of care requirements
- Care management and coordination
