California E-Consult Coalitions

Coalition Overview

California patients and providers are in the midst of a crisis that impacts access to care. E-consults can help bridge this gap. Medi-Cal managed care organizations (MCOs) in California's central valley, north rural and Sacramento regions are working together to support clinics and health systems in the region, providing no-cost access to electronic consult (e-consult) to improve Medi-Cal patients' access to specialty care and enhance care coordination among primary providers. 

The California E-Consult Coalitions involve community health centers, health systems, independent practice associations and MCOs working together to create an inclusive program to address implementation needs, streamline referral workflows and improve patient and provider experiences.

“When we think about driving quality outcomes, specialty access, referrals, and overall approach to whole health, it starts with our primary care networks... There is a lot of intersection around how can we do better, how can we make it easier for our providers…. It's an easier conversation when you can align on the simple aspects of improving the experiences of the low-income populations that we serve" -

Les Ybarra, President CA Medicaid Health Plan
Anthem, Inc. 

"We are unified by this one goal of trying to improve specialty access, there are a lot of beneficiaries and residents in need...being able to listen and the end of the day, in order to accomplish things, we all have to work together."

Jeffrey Nkansah, MPA, Chief Executive Officer
