Central California Alliance For Health

 

TeleSpecialty Care

The Alliance is proud to be an innovator in our communities and to support the use of technology to expand access to medically necessary services. The Alliance’s TeleSpecialty Care (TSC) program offers access to specialty care through real-time, video-based technology at the members’ primary care provider (PCP) office. The Alliance contracts with a vendor who provides the specialty services via real-time video at the PCP office. The PCP bills the Alliance for Medi-Cal compensable transmission and facility services, and the Alliance pays the TSC provider directly. The member receives a high-quality specialty visit in their PCP’s office, reducing the burden of travel and enhancing integration of the member into their Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH).


TSC adds value to members, PCPs and the Alliance.
