Learn about how an unprecedented reform landscape in California for youth mental health is impacting and centering schools. Learn the architecture of Medi-Cal, and how new money is flowing to schools for new types of services provided by new types of providers. Specifically, we will review how managed care plans work with schools to co-locate community-based providers and provide new opportunities for school staff. We will dive deep into the new All Payor Fee Schedule and discuss new opportunities to enhance services to both the Medicaid and commercially insured children of California.
