LACMA Town Halls

Provider Town Hall: 2023 Health Care Transitions for Patients with Medicare and Medi-Cal

California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM) includes multiple initiatives that are impacting older adults and adults with disabilities who have both Medicare and Medi-Cal. It is crucial that you and your office staff understand these upcoming changes to accurately inform and support your patients.

The objectives of this Town Hall are to:

  • Review the January 2023 Enrollment Changes affecting dual eligible beneficiaries, including Medicare Medi-Cal Plans (Medi-Medi Plans), the Cal MediConnect Transition, and the Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (D-SNP) Look-Alike Transition.
  • Discuss other Medi-Cal changes potentially affecting this population, such as the statewide expansion of Medi-Cal Managed Care, Older Adult Expansion, and Medi-Cal Asset Limit Increase.
  • Facilitate a live question-and-answer session with the Department of Health Care Services.
