This report is part of an evaluation of Cal MediConnect, California's demonstration project to integrate care for people covered under both Medicare and Medicaid.  The evaluation is being conducted by the Community Living Policy Center at UCSF and the Health Research for Action Center at UC Berkeley, and is funded by The SCAN Foundation and NIDILRR.  This report presents findings from a survey of Cal MediConnect beneficiaries and comparison samples conducted over the telephone in early 2016.  With respect to long-term services and supports, LTSS-using beneficiaries in Cal MediConnect report that health plans typically do not ask them about their LTSS, and that rarely was the beneficiary aware of any change that had been made to their LTSS as a result of their contact with the plan.
