California recently secured a waiver from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to redesign parts of their Medi-Cal program and to expand coverage for the uninsured prior to 2014. Dr. Roby will explore the changes occurring in the state as a result of the waiver, including the California Children's Services pilot programs, the Low-Income Health Programs being developed by counties and health authorities, and the transition of elderly and disabled Medi-Cal patients into managed care plans.
