While states such as New Jersey, Arizona and New York are moving to cut their Medicaid enrollment, California’s program is experiencing its most significant expansion since the 1960s. A special waiver granted by the federal government called a “Bridge to Reform” will change eligibility rules and allow hundreds of thousands of Californians to enroll in Medi-Cal over the next two years, including previously excluded single adults. That does not include the estimated 2 million more Californians expected to enroll in Medi-Cal after the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act allows Medicaid program expansion in 2014.

The effects on California’s healthcare delivery will be profound. Although Medi-Cal rates are arguably better than providing charity care, hospitals, physician groups and county health plans will be under enormous pressure to provide and coordinate care for relatively sparse reimbursement. This webinar will discuss how all sectors of California’s healthcare community will meet this daunting challenge.

Please join Erica Murray, senior vice president of the California Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems; Bradley Gilbert, M.D., Chief Executive Officer, Inland Empire Health Plan; and Mark Finucane, managing director with Alvarez & Marsal and former director of health services for Los Angeles and Contra Costa Counties, to discuss the Medi-Cal program, the waiver, reform and beyond.
