What is PATH?

The Department of Health Care Services is (DHCS) transforming Medi-Cal to ensure Californians get the care they need to live healthier lives. Managed care plans (MCP), providers, counties, tribes, and others are already implementing California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM), but this vital work requires entities to have the infrastructure and capacity needed to deliver quality Enhanced Care Management (ECM) and Community Supports.

Providing Access and Transforming Health (PATH) is a five-year, $1.85 billion initiative to build the capacity and infrastructure of on-the-ground partners to successfully participate in the Medi-Cal delivery system, as California implements ECM and Community Supports and Justice Involved services under CalAIM.

PATH provides critical funding to community-based providers, to enable them to participate in Medi-Cal – often for the first time. It can serve as a bridge between Medi-Cal managed care plans and community-based organizations (CBOs), county agencies, public hospitals, Medi-Cal Tribal and designees of Indian Health Programs, among others.

PATH has been helping organizations across California work collaboratively to expand access to care in a more sustainable way that supports implementation at the community level.
