CalAIM: In Lieu of Services

Education Brief

California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM), is a multiyear process led by the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), with goals to improve the health outcomes and quality of life experienced by Medi-Cal patients.

CalAIM initiative, originally scheduled for Jan. 1, 2021, implementation, was postponed due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. In January, DHCS released a revised proposal that includes changes based on stakeholder feedback and an updated implementation timeline of Jan. 1, 2022.

These changes to Medi-Cal will have a tremendous impact on hospitals. One of those changes affects In Lieu of Services (ILOS).

Topics discussed in this program will include:

  • Background — Medi-Cal 2020 Waiver
  • Whole Person Care Pilots
  • Proposed ILOS
  • Options related to ILOS
