Enhanced Care Management

IMPORTANT CHANGES TO WHOLE PERSON CARE 

*Note - On January 1, 2022, Whole Person Care program transitioned to a new Medi-Cal benefit called Enhanced Care Management and a service called “Community Supports.” Read more here in the public notice.

What is Enhanced Care Management?

Enhanced Care Management is a new, statewide Medi-Cal benefit similar to Whole Person Care. Someone who is eligible for the program will have their own care team, including a care coordinator. The care coordinator will work a person's doctors, specialists, pharmacists, case managers, social services providers and others to help them access the care they need.

The care coordinator can also help the person:
  • Find doctors and get an appointment;
  • Set up rides to get to doctor visits;
  • Better understand medications;
  • Find and apply for other community based services based on the member’s needs, like housing supports and food;
  • Get follow-up care after the member leaves the hospital, and
  • Link them to other services in the community.

What is Community Supports?

Community Supports services are the housing services provided by Whole Person Care.
