HCA BHS sought input from a broad spectrum of stakeholders to gather perspectives representative of Orange County’s diverse population. Participation by interested stakeholders was achieved through various methods of community outreach including written materials, surveys, ongoing collaborative meetings, public forums, provider meetings, focus groups and presentations. At every opportunity, HCA BHS provided information regarding the DMC-ODS, and requested feedback on the current system of care, service gaps and recommendations for improving and/or expanding the SUD services delivery system. This Orange County plan has been approved by the California Department of Health Care Services effective December 24, 2016.

The Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (DMC-ODS) provides a continuum of care modeled after the American Society of Addiction Medicine Criteria for substance use disorder treatment services, enables more local control and accountability, provides greater administrative oversight, creates utilization controls to improve care and efficient use of resources, implements evidenced based practices in substance abuse treatment, and coordinates with other systems of care.
