Please join Los Angeles County Department of Health Services and L.A. Care Health Plan for a stakeholder meeting, held jointly with the LA Health Collaborative, to hear more about the new managed care partnership and negotiations and provide input. The meeting will occur on January 24 from 2:30-4:00 pm at The California Endowment, Yosemite A, following the luncheon with Dr. Mitch Katz. The meeting notice may be viewed here.
Representatives from the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services and L.A. Care Health Plan have been meeting regularly to explore the opportunity for a new relationship, including the potential transition of Community Health Plan (CHP) members to L.A. Care’s direct Medi-Cal line of business. With the approval by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) of the California 1115 Waiver on November 2, 2010, the specific discussions have focused on the County’s plan for implementation of the 1115 Waiver components, particularly the SPD transition to managed care.
As one of the providers of medical services and/or advocates for members of CHP and Medi-Cal beneficiaries, we would like to update you on the status of our discussions and hear your ideas and commentary about this enhanced partnership between L.A. Care and Los Angeles County Department of Health Services to further support and strengthen the safety net system in Los Angeles County.
The California Endowment is located at 1000 N. Alameda Street in downtown Los Angeles. We look forward to your participation.
