Chris Flannery returns, by demand, to present this 90-minute, online workshop, covering the new, extra Medi-Cal services available through the California Health Homes Program (HHP).  The HHP is a program of the California Department of Health Care Services. The HHP offers extra services at no cost to Medi-Cal members with certain chronic physical and/or mental health issues, and who have high health care needs or no place to live. The training will explain how Care teams work together to plan and manage a Medi-Cal member’s care, connecting a member to community and social services (with an assigned care coordinator as the main point of contact). Among the services which will be available to the Medi-Cal member will be food, housing, medical providers, transportation to and from medical appointments, and follow-up services (after members leave a hospital or nursing facility).  Updated COVID-19 related information will be offered.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the roles of the two primary Care team members
  • Name the three requirements which all potential Medi-Cal members must meet, in order to access HHP services
  • Outline and implement the 6 HHP Core Services

Instructor: Chris Flannery is an Outreach Specialist with Harbage Consulting, where he works on projects related to educational outreach, stakeholder engagement and the implementation of public health programs in California. Currently, Chris works with the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to implement the Health Homes Program (HHP), which is a new health care program that gives qualifying Medi-Cal beneficiaries additional support. Before joining the Harbage Team, Chris was a project manager and medical scribe for physicians representing varied medical disciplines and hospitals throughout Southern California. As a program manager, he was responsible for interviewing, hiring, and training personnel for several medical transcription programs he built from the ground up. Additionally, his experience working formerly as an emergency paramedic and fire fighter supplements his medical expertise and informs his decision-making when assisting his colleagues in implementing public health programs. Chris holds a Bachelor of Arts in Musicology from the University of California at Davis and an Associate of Science in Emergency Medical Services – Paramedic from Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, CA.
