To Live and Thrive in CA: Kaiser Permanente’s Vision for Medi-Cal
October 20, 2023 – Virtual Event


Toby Douglas
Senior Vice President,
Medicaid Programs

Kaiser Permanente

Moderated by

Louise McCarthy
President & CEO

Hosted By:

In California, Kaiser Permanente is a health plan, a provider network, and a partner to the safety net. As a health plan, KP recently signed a special five-year direct contract with the State that would alter Los Angeles’ two-plan managed care model and grow KP’s footprint in Medi-Cal. As a provider network, KP must now meet the growing state requirements for CalAIM, including Enhanced Care Management and Community Supports, among other mandates. At the same time, after decades of support for the safety net, KP made a formal commitment to the state to support large-scale transformation of community health centers.

Kaiser Permanente’s role in Medi-Cal is growing substantially at the same time as the program is undergoing massive transformation. Join CCALAC for a timely discussion with Toby Douglas, vice president for National Medicaid Programs at KP, to hear about KP’s plans for Medi-Cal in California and LA. What is KP doing to support the larger safety net infrastructure? How can we partner effectively to best serve our patients and communities?
