Addressing Intimate Partner Violence through the CalAIM Population Health Management Program
Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a widespread, multigenerational problem in California that has dangerous and cascading health and social risks for individuals, families, and communities. Because more than 10 million Californians (80 percent of all those in Medi-Cal) are enrolled in a managed care plan, these plans have an opportunity to contribute to addressing and preventing IPV, particularly among people with low income and those that are most vulnerable to its harmful effects. As part of California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM), the California Department of Health Care Services is launching the Population Health Management program in January 2023. This policy brief discusses opportunities and strategies for including evidence-informed and practice-based IPV services in the Population Health Management program.
