Since January 2013, SVILC has been learning about what it means to partner effectively with health plans in providing services. SVILC is one of six organizations, and the only ILC, to participate in the SCAN Foundation's Linkage Lab project designed to assist these organizations in building connections and looking at how best to offer coordinated care services to managed care organizations. Through a series of educational programs and strategy sessions, SVILC has been examining its costs and services to determine the optimal way to package them for the capitated model of managed care and demonstrate readiness."The health plans in the eight counties, which for Santa Clara County are Anthem and Santa Clara Family Health Plan, have to show their readiness to provide HCBS," said Teixeira. "In our county, SVILC is the only organization providing transition work from skilled nursing facilities into the community. With our core independent living services and relationships with community-based organizations like the Council on Aging, we can be part of the health plans' readiness, which is one of the reasons the plans are talking to us."
