We are pleased to share several new mini-briefs highlighting CPEHN’s recommendations for ways to advance health equity as part of California’s “Medi-Cal Healthier California for All” (MHCFA) framework These briefs are in response to several MHCFA proposals discussed as part of the Population Health, Enhanced Care Management/In Lieu of Services and Behavioral Health Integration work groups.

Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans (MCP) can advance health equity by integrating physical and oral
health coverage and services, with provider incentives tied to care coordination, patient care management, referral and navigation services.
