Drug/Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System Waiver (DMC-ODS)

Ventura County Behavioral Health

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.

This approach provides the beneficiary with access to the care and system interaction needed in order to achieve sustainable recovery. DMC-ODS will demonstrate how organized substance use disorder care increases the success of DMC beneficiaries while decreasing other system health care costs.
