Children’s Regional Integrated Service System (CRISS) Activities Addressing California Children’s Services Whole Child Model Implementation

Recently the state Department of Health Care Services has turned over responsibility for California Children’s Services activities to Medi-Cal managed care organizations in 21 counties under a new program called the Whole Child Model (WCM). Building on a previous award, this funding will allow the grantee to continue monitoring the WCM program implementation to ensure that children continue to receive high-quality care, including access to appropriate pediatric specialty care, pharmaceuticals, durable medical equipment, and support services under the managed care plans.
