Because California is one of the first states to implement a dual eligible demonstration, called Cal MediConnect (part of the larger Coordinated Care Initiative or CCI), and is home to 1.1 million economically vulnerable duals (more than any other state), California is a test case for the massive coordination effort. We’re heavily focused on training advocates all over the state to assist their clients as they transition into private health plans. Through this work, and our partnerships on the ground, we’re able to identify what’s working and not working and push for needed fixes to the program. Then we share our knowledge with advocates in other states to help them as their states roll out their own programs.
All California-specific resources can also be found on our duals website.
