The December 2014 edition of Physician Magazine featured the article “What Physicians Need to Know About Medi-Medi Patients and Cal MediConnect.” This article was written by attorney Jennifer Davis and addresses the various upcoming issues for physicians and how to handle dual eligible patient enrollment issues.

Many California physicians are curious about the implications if their patients enroll in Cal MediConnect.”
