What is the Enhanced Care Management program?

We ensure individuals and families have access to all the resources they need to stay healthy, empowered, and informed.

Enhanced Care Management (ECM) provided by dedicated CII care managers is a completely free benefit supporting eligible Medi-Cal recipients of all ages who are part of a health plan with one of our partners below. We’ll be there for you as you navigate your mental and physical health care journey, until you have the confidence and skills to do it yourself.

As part of the ECM benefit, you will get help finding doctors, making appointments, and understanding your diagnosis and medicines. You’ll also be connected to services in your community such as food and housing support, job counseling, or other services. Please note that this benefit is not meant to replace your doctor’s treatment plan. It is very important that you talk to your doctor about your health care needs. We are here to support your health care with extra help you may need.

Depending on your health conditions and circumstances, we can meet you at your preferred setting, in your home, at a doctor’s office, or in your community. This is what makes ECM different from other programs.
