State of Reform Features L.A. Care as DHCS Pulls Re-Procurement Timeline

Date: 
Thursday, February 7, 2019

State of Reform mentioned L.A. Care in "Questions about Medi-Cal re-procurement and the 1115 waiver". The article talks about the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) recent action of pulling the timeline for Medi-Cal re-procurement from its website. 

In the meantime, state Medi-Cal plans like Health Net, Promise Health Plan, and L.A. Care, as well as others, are left with some level of anxiety about the future. California is a state with a wide range of implementation models for Medi-Cal. It's possible, however, that one or two models could be selected as a result of policy in the administration, and expanded statewide without a procurement process. This was a model employed in New York’s approach to Medicaid reform.
