Medi-Cal, like other Medicaid programs around the U.S., has been pressed to cut its budget. We report the results of a project using the CHAT (Choosing Healthplans All Together) exercise, designed to ascertain the priorities of disabled adult Medi-Cal beneficiaries to inform any decisions regarding Medi-Cal benefits. Participants voiced greatest interest in maintaining a wide spectrum of benefits and access to a large pool of providers and were most willing to restrict pharmacy benefits. The resulting findings may be of value to legislators drafting Medicaid proposals that revise benefits for this vulnerable population.
