Description:
DHCS released the final application and selection criteria for the Whole Person Care (WPC) Pilot Program on May 16, 2016. WPC is a demonstration program under the Medi-Cal 2020 Waiver to test coordination between multiple systems to provide coordinated care for the beneficiary. WPC Pilots will employ strategies, interventions, and services to target high-risk, high-utilizing Medi-Cal beneficiaries in the geographic area that they serve to result in better health outcomes. The application elements were based on the Waiver’s Special Terms and Conditions and developed from feedback by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, as well as various stakeholders. WPC applications are due from the lead entities on July 1. DHCS will hold a webinar on May 19, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm to describe the application and selection criteria. The webinar registration link is at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8116966844973306627. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
