Possibility of Contract Termination

Contra Costa Health Plan (CCHP) has a Medi/Cal contract with the California Department of Health Care Services (DHSC). At the end of each year, this contract is reviewed and either CCHP or DHCS can decide to end it. In this situation, members will get 90 days advance notice. It is also possible for our contract to end at some other time of the year. In this situation, CCHP will try to tell members 90 days in advance, but this advance notice may be as short as 30 or fewer days if DHCS must end our contract in the middle of the year.

Whenever a Medi/Cal contract with a health plan is terminated, members will be given a special enrolment period to choose another Medi/Cal plan.
