In California, the most culturally diverse state in the country, health care must bridge cultural and linguistic divides to serve all communities equitably. As trusted community members with lived experience, community health workers and promotores
have a long history of connecting those not well served by the traditional health care system with culturally competent health and social services. The need to expand this important workforce takes on new urgency as California aims to advance health equity through initiatives like California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM).
To address the challenges related to integrating CHW/Ps into systems of care serving Medi-Cal members, the California Health Care Foundation
has partnered with In-Sight Associates
(ISA), the Center for Health Care Strategies
(CHCS), Health Management Associates
(HMA), and Schoen Consulting
to launch Community Health Workers & Promotores
in the Future of Medi-Cal.
Working within the context of the California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM
) initiative, this 15-month project (October 2020 through December 2021) will generate a set of resource packages, informed and reviewed by stakeholders, that support CHW/Ps’ integration into Medi-Cal managed care programs. We will gather these resource packages into a toolkit and publish it in the fall of 2021. For more information please visit our website
