Title: Advancing Tobacco Treatment with Medi-Cal for Health Systems Change
A policy brief of the 5-year project highlights how over 100 health systems, Medi-Cal managed care plans, and public health partners have partnered on improving tobacco treatment.
A statewide project for health systems change to integrate tobacco treatment with a focus on health systems serving the diverse safety net population covered by Medi-Cal. Our overall goals are to 1) Develop cessation referral systems, 2) Support quality improvement projects, 3) Establish multi-level collaborations to increase Californian’s access to tobacco treatment services, and 4) Promote strategies for population health and health equity.
