C3 Community Assistance Program
Many times, when low-income people are discharged from a hospital stay or emergency room visit, they face barriers that stand in the way of their recovery. With the C3 Community Assistance Program (C3CAP), we support discharge planners, social workers, and care managers as they work to connect low-income patients to the resources they need for a safe discharge. These resources include things like transportation, temporary housing, and medical assistance.
Providence Health and Services, Kaiser Permanente and our partner care coordination organizations have been our development partners with this initiative and we expect expansion to other hospitals systems as well as providing the infrastructure for non-medical services for Medicaid members to be paid for by Coordinated Care Organizations.
