Duals Demonstration Project Begins
April 8, 2014

The duals demonstration project launched last week in five counties, according to officials from the Department of Health Care Services, which is overseeing the project.

Only one county has launched the automatic process -- known as passive enrollment -- that moves beneficiaries into new coverage. In San Mateo County, residents who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medi-Cal and who do not choose the Medi-Cal fee-for-service option will be automatically -- or passively -- enrolled in Medi-Cal managed care.

Three other counties (Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego) will begin passive enrollment next month.
