About the Whole-Child Model Family Advisory Committee

The Whole-Child Model (WCM) has been authorized to incorporate California Children's Services (CCS) covered services for Medi-Cal eligible children and youth into a Medi-Cal Managed Care Plan benefit. A provision of the Whole-Child Model requires that health plans establish a family advisory committee.

The WCM FAC is comprised of 11 voting members, including the following:

1. Seven (7) to nine (9) seats are family representatives in one of the following categories:

  • Authorized representatives, which includes parents, foster parents and caregivers of a CalOptima member who is a current recipient of CCS services;

  • CalOptima members age 18–21 who are current recipients of CCS services; or

  • Current CalOptima members over the age of 21 who transitioned from CCS services

2. Two (2) to four (4) of the seats represent the interests of children receiving CCS services, including:

  • Community-based organizations; or

  • Consumer advocates
