On April 11, Hospital Council convened Contra Costa County hospital leaders, the CEOs of Contra Costa Health and the Contra Costa Health Plan, as well as the director of the Contra Costa Employment & Human Services Department for a Medi-Cal briefing. The briefing covered the topics of Medi-Cal eligibility redetermination, the transition to a single Medi-Cal managed care plan in Contra Costa County starting Jan. 1, 2024, and how the health plan intends to address the social needs of Medi-Cal beneficiaries. 

The county shared important information and resources for hospitals, answered questions, and offered to meet with hospitals and their leadership teams to have a more focused discussion around care transitions and planning.

Takeaway / Next Steps

In monthly meetings with the Contra Costa Health CEO, Hospital Council will continue to monitor new developments concerning Medi-Cal and report back to hospitals, as well as assess the need for additional convenings.
