Medical providers are concerned that California's value-based Medicaid reforms are not reaching the patients who need help most, according to a Kaiser Health News report cited by Becker’s Payer Issues. CalAIM, a $9 billion, five-year initiative, provides patients with non-medical benefits and is designed to keep patients out of emergency departments, jails, nursing homes and mental health crisis centers, the report says. So far, 97,200 patients out of 14.7 million Medi-Cal recipients have enrolled in the CalAIM program.
