Comments on Cal MediConnect Enrollment Materials

Executive Summary

The Coordinated Care Initiative encompasses several very complex changes. This makes it very difficult to create notices that can simply and concisely explain the changes in a manner that is understandable for the large number of beneficiaries impacted. At a minimum, the notices should:

  1. alert the reader to the fact that changes are occurring;
  2. clearly explain the three choices a beneficiary can make;
  3. emphasize that a beneficiary must make a choice;
  4. drive the reader to seek more information in making a choice; and
  5. provide instructions on how to select a choice.

To accomplish these objectives, we have provided comments here and also through tracked changes on the 90-day, 60-day, and Health Plan Guidebook.
