Existing law provides for the Medi-Cal program, which is administered by the State Department of Health Care Services, under which qualified low-income individuals receive health care services. The Medi-Cal program is, in part, governed and funded by federal Medicaid Program provisions. One of the methods by which these services are provided is pursuant to contracts with various types of managed care plans.

This bill would establish a process that would permit an eligible Medi-Cal beneficiary to receive fee-for-service Medi-Cal, if available, as an alternative to plan enrollment for a prescribed period of time if the beneficiary meets specified criteria. This bill would provide that these provisions shall not apply to a beneficiary who is enrolled in a county organized health system. This bill would require the department to develop a process to track a beneficiary who has been denied a request for exemption from plan enrollment and to notify the plan, if applicable, of the denial, including information identifying the provider.
