OAKLAND _ Interpreting for California plans to meet over the weekend to discuss the status of AB 2325, a bill that seeks to establish a program to provide interpreters for limited English proficient Medi-Cal beneficiaries.
The meeting is scheduled for Saturday, July 12 at 11 am at 2201 Broadway Ave. in the 2nd Floor Conference Room in Oakland. RSVP to to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 619-206-5179.
AB2325 would require State Department of Health Care Services to establish a Medi-Cal Patient-Centered Communication program (CommuniCal) that would be administered by a third-party administrator. The bill also would set up the CommuniCal Program Fund in the State Treasury to fund the CommuniCal program.
Under the bill, the department would have the authority to certify CommuniCal medical interpreters (CCMIs).
