Affordable Care Act implementation has brought sweeping changes to health care delivery in our state with significant implications for our work in behavioral health. The Governor’s May Revision to the proposed Fiscal Year 2014-15 budget estimated Medi‐Cal enrollment to rise from 7.9 million before implementation to 11.5 million in 2014‐15 with 30 percent of the state’s population soon to be served by the program.
With implementation sure to bring significant fiscal and administrative implications to counties, the May 2014 institute was well-timed to serve as a forum to share county behavioral health experiences – successes as well as challenges.
As the sixth in our series of institutes, this session also provided opportunities for counties to share how they have applied the strategies presented in prior trainings.
