What is Cal MediConnect?

What is the goal of Cal MediConnect?

The goal of the Cal MediConnect program is to keep seniors and people with disabilities healthy and remain at home and in their communities as long as possible by delivering coordinated and patient-centered care, including Long-Term Services & Supports, through a system that is easy to navigate. Under this model, both beneficiaries and providers will experience a streamlined process:

One team. As a CareMore provider, you’re plugged into your CareMore patient’s Care Team – along with all his or her other providers, case managers, in-home caretakers and family – and kept up-to-date on what care and services each of your CareMore patients has received or may need. And if you have questions about anything, you know you can turn to us.

One plan. Patients get almost all their Medicare and Medi-Cal benefits from one health plan, meaning fewer administrative headaches for your staff and less confusion for our patients.
