The ACA and California’s efforts to support cost effective, quality services will drive significant changes in the health care landscape in the next two years.

Health Homes, the move of the California Children’s Services program into managed care, and the increased focus on integrated behavioral health each represent a great opportunity for philanthropic partnerships.

During this session we will explore how the private, nonprofit, and government sectors can collaborate to shape health impact for Southern California’s most vulnerable populations, and how philanthropy can ensure that their grantees are ready to become Medi-Cal managed care providers.
Moderated by First 5 LA Executive Director Kim Belshé, our panel will share their experiences collaborating to launch high impact managed care programs:

  • Christina Altmayer, Executive Director, Children and Families Commission of Orange County (@cfcoc)
  • Alex Li, Director of Care Transitions, LA County Department of Health Services (DHS)
  • Maria Calleros, Director of Safety Net Initiatives, LA Care (@LACareHealth)
  • Terrie Stanley, Executive Director, Clinical Operations, CalOptima

This conversation is particularly timely: one-third of Californians are currently enrolled in Medi-Cal, with almost all enrollees participating in Medi-Cal managed care in plans such as CalOptima and LA Care. Additionally, many of the low-income children in Medi-Cal are beneficiaries of investments from their County’s First 5.

We hope you can join us to explore how philanthropy can help make these managed care programs a success.
