Many uninsured health center patients will reap the benefits of the Affordable Care Act by enrolling in health insurance in 2014.  Health centers who hope to continue serving newly insured patients will need to negotiate contracts with managed care plans in both Medi-Cal and in the Exchange.  CPCA has collected and created a variety of tools to help CCHCs in the managed care contracting process.
