LifeSTEPS is adding Enhanced Care Management (ECM) to its supportive healthcare services portfolio. Effective January 2022, with the launch of California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM), LifeSTEPS will partner with Anthem and the Department of Health Care Services to offer ECM to the highest-need Medi-Cal recipients. LifeSTEPS proudly played a key role in the design of the CalAIM and ECM services, with LifeSTEPS leadership serving on the CalAIM strategic planning group.
“Building on California’s commitment to creating a healthier and more equitable state, LifeSTEPS is excited to add enhanced care management to our portfolio of supportive health care services,” said Bruce Kuban, LifeSTEPS Director of Supportive and Health Services. “This innovative program will change the way public health services are delivered and help address the social determinants of health issues facing our state’s most vulnerable populations.”
