by David Gorn

On Thursday, California health officials launched the biggest phase of the Cal MediConnect duals demonstration project by beginning passive enrollment of dual eligibles in Los Angeles County.

The duals demonstration project, also known as Cal MediConnect, is part of the state’s Coordinated Care Initiative.

In a written statement, Department of Health Care Services officials, said, “The Coordinated Care Initiative is [a] tremendous opportunity to improve care and care coordination for dual-eligible beneficiaries in California,” adding, “For too long, this population has had to navigate a fragmented system to receive the health care and social services they need. Under the CCI and Cal MediConnect, we are realigning incentives in the system to get beneficiaries the care and support they need, when and where they need it. The result will be that more older Californians and more Californians living with disabilities will receive higher quality care and have the support they need to live at home and in the community.”
