Cross Training Workforce for Integrated Care in the New Drug Medi-Cal Waiver System of Care

In the new Drug Medi-Cal Waiver System of Care, there will be an increased concern for the properly placing individuals with Substance Use Disorder (SUD) into the proper type and level of SUD care and providing evidence-based care. Further, the “silo” of SUD care will now be part of the larger healthcare system, with a particularly increased emphasis on integration with mental health services. This will necessitate that the workforce will need to clearly understand its inclusion in the healthcare system and the responsibility of every member of the SUD treatment team to be aware of the common health and mental health comorbidities of SUD and promote treatment of the “whole person”, not only their SUD. Further, within the SUD treatment system, it will no longer be acceptable or constitute adequate care, for each program to be a “siloette” in which there is little awareness or appreciation for other modalities and levels of care. Each program will now be one element in a “system” in which the priority is meeting the needs of the patient with the most appropriate/effective care (based on evidence and not personal staff ideology). These changes will require a vastly increased awareness and appreciation for the larger health and mental health system, an appreciation and awareness and willingness to participate as a member of an integrated service system and an understanding of new training needed to accomplish this system change.

Drug Medi-Cal Program Certification: Preparing for Certification Under the 1115 Waiver

The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has proposed a Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (DMC-ODS) Waiver Amendment that would amend the current Section 1155 Bridge to Reform Demonstration Waiver. The DMC-ODS provides a continuum of care modeled after the ASAM Criteria for substance use disorder treatment services enables more local control and accountability, provides greater administrative oversight, and creates utilization controls to improve care and efficient use of resources. Among the changes forwarded by this amendment is the increased role and responsibility of counties for the selection and credentialing of providers. This training is designed to assist individuals who may be involved with operationalizing the DMC-ODS at the county level to understand and better plan how to effectively and efficiently certify substance use disorder treatment programs.
