The state of California is moving forward with the Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI), including the federally-approved dual eligible demonstration known as Cal MediConnect. The CCI will start on April 1, 2014 in certain counties.
The CCI fundamentally changes the way that Californian dual eligible beneficiaries and other low-income seniors and persons with disabilities get their health care. NSCLC and DREDF have partnered to provide a webinar training series to inform and educate advocates of the upcoming changes and help them understand how their clients will be impacted by the CCI.
The webinar series will cover:
• What is the CCI?
• Who is affected by the CCI?
• How are beneficiaries affected by the CCI?
• How does enrollment work?
• What can advocates do to help their clients?
