Letter to Governor Brown and the Legislature on Medi-Cal Update

Report #222, August 2014


In this report, the Commission commends the Department of Health Care Services after hearing testimony describing changes to implement the Commission’s 2007 recommendations that sought to transform Medi-Cal, the state’s public health care delivery system. This report updates recommendations the Commission made in its May 2007 report, A Smarter Way to Care: Transforming Medi-Cal for the Future.

The Commission recommends the state consider opportunities to encourage, support and expand its data and technology infrastructure when examining broader population- and place-based health policy issues.
