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 (MCPs) can advance health equity by increasing the percentage of Medi-Cal primary care providers that are advanced primary care practices, such as those recognized by national accreditation organizations as patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs).
