The Medi-Cal Policy Committee was established by the CMHDA Governing Board to review and monitor all aspects of counties’ responsibilities associated with the Medi-Cal Specialty Mental Health managed care program, and to make recommendations to the Governing Board regarding policy and implementation. Committee membership includes representatives of CMHDA-member counties, quality assurance coordinators, representatives from the state Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), and other CMHDA committees. The committee meets monthly, with an agenda developed in consultation with DHCS, that focuses on current issues related to the role of counties in the Medi-Cal Specialty Mental Health managed care program.
