Transitioning Beneficiaries with Complex Care Needs to Medicaid Managed Care: Insights from California

This brief examines how health service providers, plan administrators, and community-based organizations in Contra Costa, Kern, and Los Angeles Counties experienced the transition of Medi-Cal-only seniors and persons with disabilities (SPDs) to managed care as part of the state’s “Bridge to Reform” Medicaid waiver. Findings presented may inform similar transitions of high-need beneficiaries in other states and coverage expansions in 2014 under the Affordable Care Act. The paper was first released in conjunction with a briefing on Medicaid managed care in the era of health reform.
