CalAIM: Managed Care and Medi-Cal

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. Some of those changes affect Managed Care.

Topics discussed in this program will include:

  • Medi-Cal Managed Care Overview
  • Proposed Managed Care Changes
  • Overview
  • Proposals to Standardize
  • Regional Rates
  • Implementation
