In 2018, California's State Plan Amendment was approved in order to implement the state's Health Homes Programs. California has thwo Health Homes: one for chronic conditions for which individuals must have two chronic conditions, or one chronic condition with risk of developing another; and one for adults with Serious Mental Illness (SMI) or children with Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED). 

The Health Homes Program (HHP) is designed to serve eligible Medi-Cal beneficiaries with multiple chronic conditions who are frequent utilizers and may benefit from enhanced care management and coordination. The HHP coordinates the full range of physical health, behavioral health, and community-based long-term services and supports (LTSS) needed by eligible beneficiaries. More information can be found in the program guide.

The HHP provides six core services:

  • Comprehensive care management
  • Care coordination (physical health, behavioral health, community-based LTSS)
  • Health promotion
  • Comprehensive transitional care
  • Individual and family support
  • Referral to community and social support services, including housing
