The Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (DMC-ODS) Waiver will transform SAPC into a specialty health plan and its system of care into a managed care network. This lecture will provide an overview of providing comprehensive, integrated specialty substance use disorder (SUD) care in a managed care environment. In an age of escalating healthcare costs in an increasingly competitive healthcare landscape, managed care has been a way for health systems to ensure quality care and increase access to services, all while containing health spending and improving outcomes. Integrating specialty SUD care into mainstream healthcare will also involve transforming the SUD system in sustainable ways to better align with other core components of the health system, such as physical and mental health services. By focusing on performance measures and outcomes, ensuring a highly trained workforce, delivering evidence-based and patient-centered care, and establishing sound business and financial plans, SUD programs can flourish with the changes occurring with the DMC-ODS Waiver and capitalize on this opportunity to improve SUD services for the residents of Los Angeles County. All of the presenters today bring a wealth of experience on this topic and can help to provide the perspective necessary to thrive while delivering SUD care in a managed care environment.

By the conclusion of the lecture, participants should be able to:

  1. List three changes SUD programs can make to better integrate with physical and mental health programs.
     
  2. Describe an integrated managed care system.
     
  3. Discuss the role of SAPC providers in the managed care system of Los Angeles County.
