ITUP Announces 2019 Regional Workgroup Convenings
The Insure the Uninsured Project (ITUP) has announced the dates and locations of its 2019 Regional Workgroup Convenings. ITUP regional workgroups bring together local leaders and community members to engage in constructive dialogue, problem-solving, and identification of creative policy solutions that expand access and improve the health of Californians. The workgroup findings are used to inform ITUP’s broader policy work and future convenings.
This year’s workgroups will focus on:
- Health Reform in California – Workgroups will share and discuss federal and state reform updates, including state efforts to cover the remaining uninsured and stabilize the individual market.
- Care Coordination – Local attendees will be engaged in a discussion on the status of local care coordination efforts for Medi-Cal beneficiaries. This topic will build on the recently-concluded state-level discussions organized by DHCS and will further explore screenings, health assessments, case management, data, transitions in care, communication, governance, training, and monitoring.
Local experts and stakeholders are invited to share information about county and regional programs and initiatives, including Whole Person Care, Whole Child Model, Coordinated Care Initiatives, and other programs to ensure meaningful access to care through the managed care delivery system.
Regional workgroup dates begin in June and run through October. Registration and additional information, including specific dates and locations, are available here.
