California Advancing and innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM),establishes the framework to address social determinants of health and improve health equity statewide. A key feature of CalAIM is the introduction of a menu of Community Supports, or in lieu of services (ILOS), in managed care. ¹
This landing page is to help providers and coordinating staff navigate the Community Supports Benefit under CalAIM in Alameda County. Community Supports (CS) refers to flexible services and wrap-around supports designed to fill medical and socially determined health gaps. These services are a substitute to avoid utilizing other services such as a hospital or skilled nursing facility admissions, discharge delays, or emergency department use. To be eligible for CS, members must meet specific eligibility requirements. Contracted community-based CS providers will provide services to approved members.
