When: Wednesday, June 8, 2022 at 2:00 PM EST
In Partnership With: Sagitec Health
Description: California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal — known as CalAIM — is a far-reaching, multiyear plan to transform California’s Medi-Cal program and integrate it more seamlessly with other social services. The goals of CalAIM include enabling Medi-Cal managed care plans to couple clinical care with a range of new nonmedical services. Those services, which Medi-Cal will reimburse, include housing support, medical respite, personal care, medically tailored meals, and peer support.
Hear from a Community-Based Organization CEO on her experience rolling out enhanced care management and community support services to meet the CalAIM mandate. Using an innovative network of Neighborhood Navigators, they focus on Medicaid members that have behavioral health conditions, experience homelessness, or have complex clinical conditions.
