The SB803 Work Group has been working since November 2020 to come up with recommendations for the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) with regard to how Peer Certification should look for California. After months of meetings and work, the last subcommittee recommendations for state-level consumer/peer input into the Peer Certification implementation in California have been sent to the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). The team at DHCS is putting all the recommendations together and will be coming out with the Informational Notice to counties, likely by mid-July. In the meantime, LEAD is planning a kick-off virtual meeting for our next phase, assisting consumers/peers in local, county-level advocacy for Peer Certification. This meeting will be June 16th at 1pm.
