Initiative A: The transfer of Drug Medi-Cal services administration from ADP to the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS)
California Assembly Bill 106, which was signed into law by Governor Brown on June 28, 2011, directs DHCS and ADP to create a state administrative and programmatic transition plan to guide the transfer of the Drug Medi-Cal (DMC) Program to DHCS effective July 1, 2012. AB 106 (Chapter 32, Statute of 2011) requires DHCS to submit a transition plan to the California Legislature by October 1, 2011, and stakeholder input was critical to the development of the plan.
DHCS and ADP convened separate meetings with stakeholders in July, August and September 2011 to discuss the transfer of Drug Medi-Cal functions from ADP to DHCS by July 1, 2012. The materials presented at those meetings are provided below. Both departments are posting materials to their respective websites throughout this process.
