The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is innovating and transforming the Medi-Cal delivery system. CalAIM is moving Medi-Cal towards a population health approach that prioritizes prevention and whole person care. This transformation aligns Medi-Cal into a system that is standardized, simplified and focused on helping enrollees live healthier lives. Success requires the investment and sustained commitment of a broad network of health partners, including providers, community-based organizations, local managed care plans, the Fresno County Mental Health Plan and the Fresno County DMC Organized Delivery System.
Fresno County DBH is implementing procedural changes related to: Payment Reform, Policy/Documentation Improvements, and Data Exchange to achieve streamlined care. Beginning January 1, 2022, providers in the Fresno County Behavioral Health systems of care must implement these changes, utilizing guidance manuals and webinars facilitated by CalMHSA. This Joint Powers Authority assists counties to roll-out new standards and provides other tools to support full implementation of the CalAIM objectives.
