Waiver Update: CCS Integration Models

While most waiver-related attention seems to be on the DSRIP and LIHP, implementation of the California Children’s Service (CCS) portion of the waiver is also moving along rapidly.

The CCS pilot projects seek to test four different models for children with serious and chronic conditions:
(1) Accountable Care Organizations,
(2) Enhanced Primary Care Case Management,
(3) Managed Care, and
(4) Specialty Health plan.

Potential applicants could include some combination of CCS providers and medical groups, children’s hospitals, health plans, counties, and county organized health systems.

The final RFP was issued on April 19th. Applications are due July 15th. And, DHCS will announce final contract awards on October 14th.
