Grossmont Healthcare District Update 4-16-15

News to RSDCN from the Grossmont Healthcare District

– Health care library’s `Wellness Wednesday’ meeting will discuss Cal Medi-Connect on April 22

The Grossmont Healthcare District’s Dr. William C. Herrick Community Health Care Library, 9001 Wakarusa St. in La Mesa, will host a free program on Cal MediConnect, a new healthcare plan for some Californians, from 10 to 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 22. The program is part of the library’s “Wellness Wednesday” series, normally held on the fourth Wednesday of the month. The program on MediConnect will help explain the program for yourself or a loved one.

The Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI) is a step toward transforming California’s Medi-Cal care delivery system to better serve the state’s low-income seniors and persons with disabilities. Under the CCI, Cal MediConnect is for those who have both Medicare and Medi-Cal, also known as Medi/Medi or dual eligibles. The voluntary program offers easier access and better coordinated care services for medical needs and social services under one plan. The benefits include additional vision and transportation services, as well as home- and community-based services.

Speaking at the Herrick Library will be Kim Huynh of Harbage Consulting and outreach coordinator for the County of San Diego in conjunction with the California Department of Health Care Services.

The Herrick Library, which opened in 2002, is a consumer health public library specializing in health research information, accessible both on-site and via the Internet. The library is operated by the Grossmont Healthcare District, a public agency that supports health-related community programs and services in San Diego’s East County.
